Don’t Do Drugs in Singapore


Pattaya One

Recommended Posts

Part of my novel BACK is set in Singapore, which I chose partly because of its strict anti-drugs laws, which surprise the American characters, and which sets the scene for some comparisons later in the novel.

I think Singapore is a fabulous place, and I always enjoy my visits there, but it’s the last place on earth anyone should be caught carrying or using drugs, which is the point I make in my novel.

Recently a heroin courier became the first person NOT to be put to death for trafficking, following reforms Singapore made to its drugs laws, to allow life imprisonment if someone is only a trafficker and they assist the authorities in disrupting the activities of other traffickers.

The guy in this case had 72 grammes of heroin and was sentenced to life plus 24 lashes of the cane, a rattan implement that apparently hurts like hell. Under the old law, anyone caught with more than 15 grammes of heroin was automatically executed....

Interestingly, your namesake, an Australian journalist, narrowly avoided the cane after being caught with a small amount of ice in Singapore. He ended up doing 6 months or so in jail though. Could have been a lot worse. Originally they charged him with trafficking.

Yeah, Bloke. it's even printed on the Immigration card.

"Warning: Death For Drug Traffickers Under Singapore Law"

Seems to spell it out.

Meanwhile, not such a big problem with drugs in Singapore, eh?

BS.  Cliche nonsense.  Use of some drugs like marijuana is a minor fine offense at best in much of SE Asia.  They openly sell in places like Laos and Cambodia for fucks sake.  Do you guys ever actually travel in SE Asia?

 

Dealing sized amounts of drugs like ice, coke, heroin across international borders....where exactly in the world will this not land one a long prison sentence or the death penalty?  Some centtral Asian 'stan' country maybe?

" Don't do drugs in Singapore"

If any of you don't know Singapore has one of the most strictest laws with still having capital punishment. Amazingly it is a crime to sell chewing gum, littering and owning porn.

Doing drugs in Singapore? You get a death sentence.no joke ..............eg. Van Nguyen

I would say don't do anything wrong in Singapore as their laws are draconian. If you think back a few years a you American guy was sentanced to caning for putting graffiti on a car. I don't know if it was carried out or not. Here is some information on this punishment:

 

Singaporean law allows caning to be ordered for over 30 offences, including hostage-taking, robbery, gang robbery with murder, drug use, vandalism, and rioting. Caning is also a mandatory punishment for certain offences such as rape, drug trafficking, illegal money-lending, and for visiting foreigners who overstay their visa by more than 90 days, a measure designed to deter illegal immigrant workers.

Caning is in practice always ordered in addition to a jail sentence and never as a punishment by itself. It is administered in an enclosed area in the prison, out of view of the public and other inmates. Those present are limited to the inmate, prison wardens, medical officers, the caning officer and sometimes high-ranking prison officials to witness the punishment.

An inmate sentenced to caning receives no advance warning as to when he will be caned, and is notified only on the day his sentence is to be carried out. In the caning room, the inmate is ordered to strip naked and receives a medical examination by the prison doctor to check whether he is medically fit for caning, by measuring his blood pressure and other physical conditions. If the doctor gives the green light, the inmate then receives his caning, but if he is certified unfit for punishment, he is sent back to the court for his prison term to be increased instead. A prison official confirms with him the number of strokes he is to receive.

The inmate is then led to the A-shaped frame (called a "caning trestle") and his wrists and ankles secured tightly to the frame by strong leather straps in such a way that he assumes a bent-over position on the frame at an angle of close to 90° at the hip, with his posterior protruding. Protective padding is placed on his lower back to protect the vulnerable kidney and lower spine area from any mis-strokes so that only his buttocks are exposed to the cane. The officer administering the caning takes up position beside the frame and delivers the number of strokes specified in the sentence, at intervals of 10 to 15 seconds. He is required to put his full force into each stroke. The strokes are administered all in one caning session, unless the medical officer certifies that the inmate cannot receive any more strokes because of his condition, in which case the rest of the strokes are converted to additional prison time.

 

If you want to see a video of someone getting caned check out the page I stole the text from.

Is there any truth in the story that caning is a legacy of British rule?

From the wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caning_in_Singapore

 

Caning, as a form of legally sanctioned corporal punishment for convicted criminals, was first introduced to Singapore and Malaysia (both then part of British Malaya) during the British colonial period.

 

Yeah so looks like the Brits took it there, and they improved on it.

Should be a Mandatory 5 Year Stretch for anyone found in possession of a non prescribed drug.

Quite Simple and build the Jails out of Billions saved. Within 3 Months with 1000's being convicted every week for one MDMA tablet etc than the message gets home.
