SINGAPORE: TWO CONVICTED DRUG TRAFFICKERS ESCAPE GALLOWS, IMPRISONED FOR LIFE

April 20, 2015: Two convicted drug traffickers were spared the gallows today, four years after being sentenced to death.
Cheong Chun Yin, 31, and Pang Siew Fum, 60, both Malaysians, were sentenced to life imprisonment for trafficking 2.7 kg of heroin to Singapore on June 16, 2008. They were convicted in 2010.
Cheong was also given 15 strokes of the cane ‚ÄĒ the minimum prescribed by the Misuse of Drugs Act.
High Court judge Choo Han Teck said he was satisfied that Cheong‚Äôs involvement in the act was that of a courier. Justice Choo also noted that the prosecution had tendered documents certifying Cheong had ‚Äúsubstantively assisted‚ÄĚ the Central Narcotics Bureau in disrupting drug trafficking activities outside Singapore.
The Misuse of Drugs Act was amended together with the Penal Code in 2012 to remove the mandatory death penalty for certain types of homicide and drug trafficking offences, in a move to ‚Äútemper justice with mercy‚ÄĚ.
Apart from meeting the condition of having only played the role of a courier, a drug trafficker must either have cooperated with the Central Narcotics Bureau in a substantive way or have a mental disability that substantially impairs his appreciation of the gravity of the act.
In Pang’s case, Justice Choo was persuaded that she was suffering from mental abnormalities during the time of the offence. (Sources: todayonline.com, 20/04/2015)
