Abstract

In the year under review, there was one major decision from the Singapore Court of Appeal dealing with the relationship between the punitive legislative framework and the common law restitutionary claim by a principal against a bribed agent. In addition, several important issues on the shape of the law of restitution in Singapore received some airing in a number of cases. The three most significant issues related to the law on the recovery of contractual deposits, the nature and structure of the claim commonly called “knowing receipt”, the defence of change of position and the related potential defence of change of circumstances.
