I was wrongly accused for a crime that I did not commit. I was being investigated by the police. As a foreigner I didn’t know what to do and was very scared. I was afraid that I could lose my job and status in Singapore. Mr Gino Hardial Singh believed in me and helped me with representations to the Attorney General’s Chambers and the Police. After months of anxiety of being investigated by the police, finally they decided to drop the case and no further action was taken against me. I was very much grateful to Mr Singh and and Mr Arun who assisted. I would very much recommend him. Thank God and thank Mr Gino and Mr Arun for your help.

Nandha,
