This matter was eventually the subject of legal proceedings at the District Court. The District Judge set aside the decision to terminate Leong's life membership, meaning it is treated as having never been made, and ordered Leong and the SCF to each bear their own legal costs. Mr Leong has recently requested that we mention the decision of the court on the SCF website. More details of this matter can be found in the attached document.
