About the Book

“In this book, I am sharing with you all my feelings very candidly
about what I have gone through and practically baring my soul.
Through these crises, I have learnt to cope with life better and
face my greatest fears instead of rolling over and playing dead.”
—Subhas Anandan

Subhas Anandan (1947–2015) was Singapore’s the best-known criminal lawyer, having led several landmark cases that shaped the face of criminal law in Singapore. 

In the first volume of his autobiography The Best I Could (first published in 2008), Subhas Anandan covered many sensational cases, such as those of Anthony Ler, Took Leng How and Ah Long San, and espoused 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, including Singapore’s Chief Justices and Attorney-Generals, who have affected him in one way of the other. It is also a searing and honest account of his life, career and friendships — dictated to his wife in 2014 while undergoing kidney dialysis.

About the Author

Subhas Anandan headed the Criminal Law department in KhattarWong for several years before moving on to RHTLaw Taylor Wessing. A renowned criminal lawyer in Singapore, he is credited with the conduct of several landmark cases that have shaped the face of criminal law in Singapore. He handled well over 1,500 criminal cases from murder and kidnapping to drug trafficking, and defended those involved in white-collar crimes and arrested under the Internal Security Act (ISA).

In 2001, he was awarded the Legal Eagle Award by the Law Society of Singapore. In 2014 he was honoured by the Association of Muslim Lawyers (Singapore) for championing pro bono work. The “Yellow Ribbon Fund Subhas Anandan Star Bursary Award” was also launched to provide financial support to ex-inmates who wish to pursue further education.
