  3. Mr Ravi, Yong’s lawyer, said in the video that Malaysia and Singapore has the capital punishment for drug trafficking. So, being Malaysian and a frequent traveler to Singapore, Yong should know very well what he did was against the law of both countries and has extreme repercussions if caught.

    So, my question for all those people who are petitioning for his death sentence to be reverse is – what justification is there for his penalty to be reversed when he is in full knowledge of the consequence of his actions?

    I am not a heartless man, I pity him, such a young age and have to leave his already lonely mother alone to live on in pain. But is the Singapore Government accede to these petition, then all youngsters can do this and be pardon. Yes, this is a sad story, but he has to be responsible for his actions.

  4. Dear Gary,

    Aren’t there second chances in life…

    In any case, reversal of death sentence doesn’t mean letting him go free from prison. Wouldn’t a stiff present sentence do and at the same time he can share his experience with others….

    Also isn’t it the height of hypocrisy for the Singapore Govt to hang drug mules while at the same time tolerating the burmese junta & drug barons: http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Global_Secrets_Lies/BurmaSingapore_Drugs.html

    If you haven’t done so, i strongly recommend you get hold of and read Alan Shadrake’s book: https://jacob69.wordpress.com/2010/07/08/singapore-government-bans-book-that-delves-into-its-use-of-the-death-penalty/
