Little India Riot: Pro bono defence counsel assigned for 26 of the 28 workers charged
The Law Society said on Wednesday it will assign pro bono defence counsel to 26 of the 28 workers charged in relation to the Little India riot.
The lawyers are among the many who responded to the call for volunteers to represent the accused under the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme, it said in a statement.
The remaining two workers have engaged their own lawyers.
"The Law Society is grateful to these (and all) volunteers for their support and sacrifice." said the statement.
