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.

AsiaOne: S'pore drug syndicate leader arrested

AsiaOne: S'pore drug syndicate leader arrested

Fri, Oct 08, 2010

AROUND 4.7kg of heroin was seized by Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) officers in what is deemed as the biggest haul since 2008.

The estimated street value of the haul is $702,000, said CNB in a statement on Friday.

A 38-year-old man suspected to be the leader of a local drug syndicate has been arrested, along with two others.

CNB officers launched an operation at around 7.30am on Thursday when information was received that a drug transaction will be taking place.

Officers spotted the syndicate leader leaving his flat at Commonwealth Close at 9am.

He proceeded to the Kitchener Road area, where he was seen meeting up with a 56-year-old man and handing over an envelope, which contained $3,000.

Both were immediately arrested.

The 56-year-old man led officers to the syndicate leader's car, where 600g of heroin was recovered.

A 38-year-old man, believed to be the leader's associated, was also arrested in a follow-up raid of the leader's flat.

CNB officers recovered a bag with 4kg of heroin, as well as drug paraphernalia, including weighing scales, empty plastic sachets and drug smoking utensils.

All three are Singaporeans and unemployed.

They are currently being investigated for drug trafficking and face a minimum of five years' imprisonment and caning.

Under the Misuse of Drugs Act, the men might also be sentenced to death.
