The other side of Singapore

Lance Lattig, south-east Asia researcher at Amnesty International:

When it comes to drug trafficking, Singapore operates an institutionalised system of unfair trials with automatic presumption of guilt and a mandatory death penalty. Singapore doesn’t recognise the universal right to free speech. Instead, the government tightens or loosens restrictions on free speech as it pleases.

“Once a Jolly Hangman” is a great read.
