Editor’s Note: This is a FB post on 31 Oct 2014 by K Shanmugam (Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Law) lauding the achievements of noted criminal lawyer, Subhas Anandan
Subhas Anandan has handled over 1,500 cases in his career. He is one of our best known criminal lawyers. In recognition of Subhas’ work, the Association of Muslim Lawyers held a tribute event on Tuesday where they launched the Yellow Ribbon Fund .The award is called the Subhas Anandan Star Bursary Award.
It will provide financial support to ex-inmates who wish to further their studies, and help give them a second chance in their lives.
I attended the event. It was quite a moving experience to hear people speak about Subhas. Subhas also delivered a touching speech where he thanked judges, colleagues and his family for standing by him during his recent bouts of severe illness.
I am glad that Subhas is practicing once again. All of us wish him the very best.
