We have also heard that since Vui Kong's appeal started, there has been an unofficial stay of execution for all prisoners on death row in Changi Prison, pending the decision of the court on Yong's case. As the case has been dismissed by the Court of Appeal, we anticipate a Changi gallows bloodbath in a scale not seen since the Pulau Senang uprising in 1965 when 18 men were convicted of murder and hanged in a single Friday morning.

Singapore, which routinely persecute dissenters and critics, continue to hang young drug runners while at the same time work closely with Burmese military generals, and has invested billions in business ties with Burma, one of the biggest heroin manufacturing countries the world.

Ang Beng Bee tried to kill himself after he was arrested.

A SINGAPOREAN man went berserk and tried to kill himself by cutting his wrists and throat with a razor after he was arrested by Thai officials for having over 4,000 ecstasy pills, Thai online news MCOT said yesterday.

Ang Beng Bee, 46, was caught at a Thai-Malaysian border checkpoint in the Sadao district of Songkhla province during a random check. Thai customs officers found 4,384 ecstasy pills, 1g of crystal methamphetamine or "Ice" and five nimetazepam pills, a hypnotic drug, in his luggage.

Their total street value: S$152,000. Ang, who was treated at Sadao Hospital, said he had travelled from Johor to sell the drugs in Sadao and Hat Yai.

It's not known how Ang, who speaks fluent Thai, came in possession of the weapon, Pattaya Daily News reported. He may have concealed it on him, the report said.
