GUILTY AS CHARGED: 25 Crimes That Have Shaken Singapore Since 1965
Murder. Dismemberment. A shooting. A stabbing. Cheating. Murder for gold bars. Murder for a Rolex. Murder.

This book recounts 25 infamous crime cases that have taken place in Singapore since 1965.

Some of the victims’ names are still remembered today.

Jenny Cheok, 22, killed by her apparently devoted boyfriend Sunny Ang during a diving trip near the Sisters’ Islands.

Nine-year-old Agnes Ng and 10-year-old Ghazali Marzuki, killed by self-styled medium Adrian Lim, his wife and his mistress.

Huang Na, nine, murdered at the Pasir Panjang Wholesale centre by vegetable packer Took Leng How.

Other cases include:
• The tourist from hell, John Martin Scripps, who in 1996 killed South African tourist Gerard George Lowe
• Chia Teck Leng, sentenced to 42 years in jail in 2004 for swindling four foreign banks out of S$117 million
• The “One-Eyed Dragon”, gun-wielding gangster Tan Chor Jin
• The Sunshine Empire scheme of 2006 that swindled ordinary Singaporeans out of nearly S$190 million
• The killing of two-year-old Nonoi in 2006
• The 2015 trial and conviction of Yap Weng Wah, who sexually abused about 30 boys in flats, a chalet and toilet cubicles
over three years.

Guilty As Charged, which is edited by The Straits Times associate news editor Abdul Hafiz, is a detailed retelling of these 25 cases and the trials that followed, and is rich with photographs from The Straits Times archives.
