Interesting → Drug Traffickers... Welcome to Singapore!

In spite of the poster with the woman who is going to be hanged is fake (this image even contains of English grammar mistakes) it completely reflects the situation in Singapore. Capital punishment is a legal form of punishment in Singapore. The state had the highest per-capita execution rate in the world between 1994 and 1999, estimated by the United Nations to be 13.57 executions per one million population during that period. The next highest was Saudi Arabia with 4.65. Under Section 216 of the Singapore Criminal Code: "When any person is sentenced to death, the sentence shall direct that he shall be hanged by the neck till he is dead but shall not state the place where nor the time when the sentence is to be carried out." Hangings always take place at dawn on Friday and are by the long drop method developed in the United Kingdom by William Marwood. Under the Schedule 2 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, any person found in the possession of more than the following quantities of drugs receives a mandatory death sentence in Singapore: Opium: 1,200 g, containing more than 30 g of morphine; aAny controlled drug (except opium): containing more than 30 g of morphine; Diamorphine (Heroin): 15 g; Morphine: 30 g; Cocaine: 30 g; Cannabis: 500 g; Cannabis mixture: 1,000 g; Hashish: 200 g; Methamphetamine: 250 g. According to Amnesty International, about 420 people have been hanged in Singapore since 1991, mostly for drugs offences.

Singapore seems to practice strict sex equality with the death penalty and hanged 9 women in the 90's. Six were executed for drug trafficking under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1973/75 which made drug trafficking a capital offence and 3 were hanged for murder. All Singaporean executions are carried out before dawn on Friday's in Changi prison and no details are released. Prisoners are usually executed in groups (of up to 7 at a time) with men and women being hanged together using the long drop method. Bodies are returned to the relatives for burial. Executions are now rarely reported unless the criminal is not Singaporean. It is highly probable that more Singaporean women have been hanged for drug trafficking since 2000 and at least one has suffered for murder.

Hanged for drug trafficking were:
Hong Kong born, Cheuk Mei-mei, aged 29, who was executed on the 3rd of March 1994 followed by Hong Kongese born, Tsang Kai Mong Elke on the 16th of December 1994. Twenty five year old Angel Mou Pui- Peng, who was from the Portuguese province of Macau, went to the gallows on the 6th of January 1995 having been allowed a one week stay of execution to celebrate Christmas as she was a Christian.
Tong Ching-man (24) and Poon Yuen-chung (22) who were both from Hong Kong and were only 18 at the time of their crime, were hanged on the 21st of April 1995.
Thai national, Navarat Maykha (32), was executed on the 28th of September 1996.
Chinese national, Yen May Woen (37), became the first person to be executed in Singapore for drug trafficking in 2004. She was hanged on the 19th of March 2004.

This is great Singapore! Way to show the world
the way it SHOULD be. We need to do the same
here in the U. S. That would fix the drug
problem. Show the same to users as well. Good
for no one, especially themselves. Good
riddance, period.

That police in the photo is not from singapore. That woman too! Singapore have a fair law system in fact. There's tonnes of investigation done before they sentence a person for death row. Simple, Always be alert! People get sabotaged every where, not just in Singapore.

For those who think these laws are justified or in any way defend them you should know that the police in these countries are usually corrupt and work with the drug traffickers. They plant drugs on tourist and have them arrested so the police get a bust.

Considering some drugs should be
legalized. Saying all drugs should be
legalized makes you look like a dumbass.
Until you have seen what herione and
meth have done to people and drugs like
cocaine aswell. Closing all pharmacies
is a dumbass idea too. those drugs are
supposed to be used the correct way for
people to heal from the sicknesses. your
a fuckin idiot anonomous. your the type
of person that makes me lose all hope
for humanity because apparently we are
not as evovled as we all think we are.
do some research on drugs in general
before making dumb comments. THERES A
SIGN ON SIGNAPORE AIRPORT THAT SAYS
"DRUG TRAFFICKERS RECEIVE THE DEATH
SENTENCE" enough said

Fuck about their laws. If they created laws, they should also created investigation system that can accurately work to find out if someone is actually really guilty or he or she is just a victim of someone else did that. But I dont think they'll do that. The thing is Singapore government personnel are bloodlust, asshole cowards, and their mothers are pigs. They are all diserve to die, their children their wives, sisters, brothers, uncle, mother, father and all everyone who kiss their ass.

Tong Ching-man (24) and Poon Yuen-chung (22).They werenot drug trafickers,they were traped by someone else put drugs on their bags. Yet their government still executed them, and you know what? recently they murdered young overseas student his name was David. Because he invented something is important for their military. They invite students to research it, and when they invented something they will be murdered by their government! TO THE GOVERNMENT OF SINGAPORE, ONE DAY YOU'LL PAY THAT!
DOESN'T MATTER IF IT'S YOU OR YOUR CHILDREN. You better hope none of your
relatives come near us....
They all human rights violators, that's why they never reveal reports of executions. Maybe their police raped them before execution, or beat them, doesnt matter. They will pay that. I personally if one day I ever meet someone who works for singapore's government, I will kill them. Too bad your embassy is not here.
