knowing SQ, they will produce that document, saying they have tried to accomodate the request out of goodwill, saying they are not obliged to as they are not a Uk carrier and so forth..... the court will charge interest rate payable by SQ UK.... it just depends on how long you wish to drag it for.... If your friend has no intention to take sq anytime soon and there is no other anxillary issues such as medical claims, that will be ok...just take the money. the waiver was simply stipulated by the SIN office and most of the time, the default answer to the customer is always no.
What would you get from small claims court? They would get SQ to try to pay your (OP's) friend again, exactly the same way as before. They have accommodated the request for compensation, and if you refuse it there's not much that the court could or should punish them for.
