Mok Ly Yng on “Horsburgh Lighthouse: 160th anniversary” (Sat 15 Oct 2011) « Otterman speaks…

The Horsburgh Lighthouse is located on the island of Pedra Branca, awarded to Singapore by the decision of the International Court of Justice in 1998. The anniversary of the lighthouse's operation is important as a key factor of the award, which effectively confirms our maritime boundary all the way to where the Straits of Singapore meets South China Sea. This not only extends substantially our exclusive economic zone but confirms Singapore as the southern guardian of one of the most important waterway in the world, the Straits of Malacca, through which most of the fossil fuel that powers China, Japan and Korea passes through.
