Drug trafficker in S'pore becomes the first to escape death penalty
By Rahimah Rashith | Yahoo! Newsroom 10 hours ago

A 29 year-old involved in drug trafficking has escaped death penalty in the first capital case prosecuted on Wednesday under the amended Misuse of Drugs Act.

Abdul Haleem Abdul Karim was convicted of trafficking a Class A controlled drug and possessing drugs for the purposes of trafficking.

However, under the revised Act which came into effect in January, he satisfied the dual requirements of having only played the role of courier and also that he provided substantive assistance. Instead of capital punishment and death, he has been sentenced to life imprisonment and the maximum 24 strokes of the cane.

For substantively assisted Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in disrupting drug trafficking activities within Singapore, he received the Certificate of Cooperation by Attorney-General Steven Chong.

His partner-in-crime Muhammad Ridzuan Md Ali, 27-year-old was also convicted of the same drug charges but has been sentenced to death as he did not fulfill the requirements.

Abdul Haleem and Muhammad Ridzuan were both arrested on May 6 2010, and were given two charges of having not less than 72.50 grams of diamorphine in possession for the purpose of trafficking and having in possession for the purposes of trafficking no more than 14.99 grams of diamorphine.

Abdul Haleem took a consistent stance as set out in his statements and under cross-examination, and was observed to be a truthful and straightforward witness said Deputy Public Prosecutor Shahla Iqbal.

Singapore lawmakers amended the Misuse of Drugs Act and Penal Code to ease the mandatory death penalty for drug traffickers and homicide offences last year.

Courts can now impose a life sentence instead if the accused is found to be "only a drug courier" and has assisted the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) in a substantive way or if he is suffering from mental impairment.

Before he was sentenced yesterday, Abdul Haleem Abdul Karim, 30, asked to be hanged if his friend, Muhammad Ridzuan Md Ali, 28, was sent to the gallows.

Choking with emotion, he told Justice Tay Yong Kwang: "If you are sparing my life and not sparing his life, I'd rather go down with him."

But the judge replied: "The court does not have complete discretion to do whatever you want me do."

I would rather think that I am funding a hope that a young guy like him will turn around and be a useful person to society next time.

Guess he will be guilty for text rest of his life if he escapes but the other goes to the gallows.

I thought life imprisonment in Singapore is around 25-30 years?

Anyway, more on life imprisonment with reference from the Oriental Hotel Case

http://infopedia.nl....2011-04-04.html
An extract from the above:
Other legal developments


In March 1997, Abdul Nasir was sentenced to life imprisonment and six strokes of the cane for staging the kidnapping of two police officers in 1996. At the time, life imprisonment was taken to mean 20 years, and the sentence would run consecutively with Abdul Nasirs other sentence of 18 years for robbery with hurt. However, Abdul Nasir appealed against the sentence of life imprisonment, asking that the two sentences run concurrently.

The case came before the Court of Appeal, presided over by Chief Justice Yong Pung How, which dismissed the appeal and ruled that the two sentences should run consecutively. In a landmark ruling, the court also defined life imprisonment to mean imprisonment for the rest of a convicted persons natural life.

However, the latter ruling did not apply to Abdul Nasirs case, so the total length of his incarceration remained at 38 years, with a possible reduction for good behaviour.

"Your apartment will be worth a fraction of what it is."

"Your jobs will be in peril, your security will be at risk and our women will become maids in other people's countries."

actually both are treat rather equally. it's only because the other dun have the "cert".

the guy getting life lucky/unlucky to get the cert is spared death.

looks like the courts still have not ease up on not hanging the drug couriers, mules, pushers etc.
which might not be a wrong thing as the effect of the drugs are basically bad.

along with the minus of how people normally fund their addiction to the drugs.

There is no 'next time' for life imprisonment, unless you mean next life...
