Here we go again

Doh! You fool!

SINGAPORE, July 18 - A Singapore court has charged an Australian journalist for drug-related offences that could see him jailed up to 20 years and caned 15 times if convicted, court documents showed on Friday.

Peter Lloyd, a senior journalist with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, was charged with possessing and selling about 1 gram of methamphetamine for S$100 to a Singaporean, court documents said.

Punishment for drug possession is a jail term of up to 10 years and a S$20,000 fine, while the penalty for drug trafficking is 20 years imprisonment and 15 strokes of the cane.

Yes, that's what it's like in Singapore... you bring drugs in, you're pretty much dicing with death or it's equivalent.

Oh, we look out for those that traffic wholesale. We're close to the
Golden Triangle after all, so we're nothing if not FANATICAL about drugs passing through Singapore. We may close one eye on weed (I had a friend who used to smuggle in a wee patch during business trips for personal consumption) but if you get caught SELLING, holy shit you're fucked.

And I mean Majorly Fucked.

You think I am being extravagant in my description? Under our Misuse of Drugs Act, you'll be hung for bring in miniscule portions of certain drugs, for example : 15 grams of heroin, 30 grams of cocaine, 500 grams of cannabis or 250 grams of methamphetamines.

That's right. Hung by the neck until dead. We are FAMOUS for it. *snort*

As you enter Singaporean territory, our local airlines and ferries will announce that the death penalty is in force. Step into our immigration complexes and posters in lurid red will remind you NO DRUGS. Even your immigration card carries it.

There is no mistaking THAT warning.
And yet we get people who still try and sell.

*shakes head*

Hello? We are Singapore? Once we get something into our heads, it's pretty hard to try and hide it? There is, of course, the stupid mule side.... like the Mas Selemat case where complacency ruled the day. Complacency from the ground ALL the way up that had a lot of Singaporeans yelling.

But on drugs? When will these fools ever learn?

I am glad the Netherlands are only five hours from my house and they don't hang anybody there.
I have to agree how fuckin stupid can you be to bring drugs into a country that is DEAD set against them. I really have no pity for these idiots.
What makes me laugh is the western governments that actually fight to get lenient sentences. They all should hang and then maybe others will really think twice.
