In Singapore, a 46-year-old man would be put to death the following week for his involvement in the trafficking of one kilo of marijuana.
For trafficking one kilogram of marijuana, a Singaporean court condemned a man to death. It is implied from the sentence that he will be hanged. The prisoner’s appeal against the punishment was rejected by the Asian nation’s authorities.
First arrests for possessing new psychoactive substances were made in Singapore.
The execution of Tangaraju Suppiah, who was found guilty in 2018, will take place on Wednesday despite the fury and protest of numerous organizations who view this action as “extremely cruel” and a “violation of international law.”Suppiah received a one kilogram (double this quantity) sentence for trafficking marijuana, even though under Singaporean law just half a kilogram of marijuana carries the death penalty. The Court of Appeal maintained his sentence, noting that it had been established “beyond a reasonable doubt” that he was responsible.
Suppiah was accused and found guilty of involvement in the trafficking of illegal narcotics even though he never touched the drug. This led to the rejection of the sentence by a number of human rights organizations who claim that it is neither fair nor appropriate to the crime committed.
According to human rights organizations in the Southeast Asian city-state, the guy will be put to death for his involvement in the trafficking of one kilogram of marijuana.Singapore’s zero-tolerance approach to illicit narcotics has resulted in the conviction of hundreds of men, including foreigners, to far.
Humanitarian organizations have demanded the abolishment of the practice in Singapore and other nations across the world as a result of the situation’s heightened debate over the death penalty and the state’s attempts to combat drug trafficking.
