Tangaraju Suppiah, a 46-year-old Singaporean, was put to death on Wednesday in Changi Prison, Singapore Prison Service said in a brief statement.

The European Union’s office in the city state and a United Nations’ rights office had also called for Singapore not to carry out his hanging.

Tangaraju was sentenced to death in 2018 for “abetting the trafficking of more than one kilogram of cannabis (1,017.9 grams),” according to a statement from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB).

The court found he was in phone communication with two other men caught trying to smuggle cannabis into Singapore.

But the Singapore government has continued to resist calls for reform, carrying out eleven executions last year alone, all for drug related trafficking offenses.

Under the law, anyone caught trafficking, importing or exporting certain quantities of illegal drugs like methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine or cannabis products receives the mandatory death sentence.

Singapore has a strong reputation as a rule of law country so this concerning omission is not normal,” Perrett added. »

As the use of “perennial” should suggest, there is little truly original about Macron’s diplomacy toward the world’s leading powers.

Here, a stark irony arises, as when Macron following his trip to China defiantly announced that his country will not be a “vassal” of the United States.

Over time, these have included the Soviet Union, Chairman Mao Zedong’s China, and now the very different China of President Xi, an economic and increasingly military superpower. »
