UN HUMAN RIGHTS: SG MUST BAN DEATH PENALTY, OFFENDERS DON'T DESERVE TO DIE

The UN Human Rights Office for South-East Asia condemns the execution of Malaysian national Prabagaran Srivijayan. It noted the increase of executions in Singapore and was concerned about how they are conducted in "secretive" manner. "We reiterate our position that drugs related offences are not considered as a ‘most serious crime’ under international law and should not carry the death penalty. We also reiterate previous calls to the Singaporean government to immediately instate a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, which we believe has no place in the 21st century."

A pub worker was jailed and caned for attacking a customer with a wine opener around Peace Centre. Jerriek Chen Weixiong was angry at the male customer for trying to chat up his manager's girlfriend and followed him as he was leaving the pub. Armed with a wine opener, he punched the guy repeatedly with the sharp end of the opener in between his fingers, deliberately causing the man to get scratched and to bleed a lot.

Two other pub workers followed his example and attacked the victim. They were all arrested after the police arrived at the scene. The victim, Mr Tay, suffered injuries to his face and was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital where he got multiple stitches. Loyal or stupid?
