"Subhas Anandan passed away on 7 January 2015 at the age of 68. He was Singapore’s the best-known criminal lawyer, having led several landmark cases that shaped the face of criminal law in Singapore. The first volume of his autobiography The Best I Could was published in 2009 and covered many sensational cases to his views on the mandatory death sentence and ‘police entrapment’. In this second volume It’s Easy to Cry, this foremost champion of pro bono work moves away from depicting gruesome murders and delves instead into the emotions behind the crimes. He writes about cases where deep and complex emotions are displayed, like the mother who lied and pleaded guilty to save her son. He also shares his thoughts on the many people who have affected him in one way of the other and the legal system in Singapore. “So you start to wonder how certain people get promoted when they can’t even interpret the law of corruption properly. They go up there, they sit there and then they get promoted. What other greater mistakes can we make? And so, you have to take chances. In the subordinate court, I have taken some judges to the appeal court on numerous occasions and got their judgments reversed. Yet, they still remain there, trying the same old rubbish, which always gets overruled in the end.”
