Clear he was at the transit lounge ready to take the next flight out. He didn't have the intention
of disembarking in Singapore and thus he didn't even fill and have a the white disembarkation card
with him. However, he was dragged into Singapore. A blood thirsty hounding police and harshly
inhumane city state.

All these while, the Sg gov is know to have alot of 'wayang wayang'
going on hopefully, this time round they may play another wayang show
at the eleventh hour, to stop the hanging.

Unfortunately, our left-handed PM has the sort of character that likes
excitement such as, 'no trouble but, want to find trouble'.
Never mind lar, after the hanging, if those aussie boycott Optus which
they may face heavy losses, its alright what? afterall, its not money
coming from his own pocket what?

this old man's son, always been through life the easy way, he will be hard
to due with, one day he will know, that if he never give others a chance
when others begged for mercy in future others will not help him either. look
at how his first wife died, she must have been suffering inside for many
many months even years, yet this heartless chap just stood by and watch her
suffer and commit suicide. and then he willingly accepts another wife, in
the hands of those who killed his first, yet he holds no anger nor grouches
on those who've made her suffered most while she was still alive. there is
definitely something not revealing about this chap, he is difficult and
surely have some mental issues. no normal person will just stood by and
watch his wife suffer for so long, and does nothing about it.

Come on lah, you mean it's ok for drug traffickers to go through our country
but not ok for them to step onto our soil? For all you know, it was Aussie
intelligence officers that asked Singapore police to do them a favour!
Anyway, he knows the consequences of his actions, so there really is no more
need to debate whether he should be hanged. Nobody asked his brother to
borrow money from a loanshark and nobody asked him to carry drugs. It's a
matter of choice.

Singapore defends Nguyen hanging

November 30, 2005
SINGAPORE'S High Commissioner in Australia Joseph Koh has defended his
country's decision
to execute convicted drug trafficker Nguyen Tuong Van as correct and
responsible.

In an opinion piece published in Fairfax newspapers today, Mr Koh said
Singapore had not
breached international law, with no existing international agreement to
abolish the death penalty.

"Capital punishment remains part of the criminal justice systems of 76
countries, including
in the United States, where it is practised in 38 states," he said.

"We respect Australia's sovereign choice not to have capital
punishment. We hope Australia
will likewise respect Singapore's sovereign choice to impose the death
penalty for the most
serious crimes, including drug trafficking."

Mr Koh's comments were in direct contradiction to a statement issued by
former Australian
High Court judge and governor-general Sir William Deane yesterday.


Sir William, who commented on the Nguyen case in a "private capacity",
said Friday's planned
execution was a breach of the standards of international law.

"What is involved is the intended execution of an Australian citizen
pursuant to a mandatory
death sentence," Sir William said in the statement.

"That is to say without any true assessment by a court of what
punishment is appropriate
in all the circumstances of the particular case.

"That being so, the proposed killing of Mr Van Nguyen would be a breach
by Singapore of
basic current principles and standards of international law."

But Mr Koh said Australians should accept the Singapore Government's
responsibility to
protect people whose lives would be "blighted and destroyed by the drug
syndicates".

In a piece in which he debunks "fictions" that have sprung up around
the Nguyen case,
Mr Koh said the punishment did fit the crime.

"Mr Nguyen was caught with 396g of pure heroin, enough for 26,000
'hits', with a street
value of more than $A1 million," he wrote.

Other "fictions" were that Nguyen could testify against drug lords,
that Nguyen was an
unsuspecting victim and that the death penalty had not deterred drug
trafficking.

He denied that the Singapore Government "connived with drug lords" and
that Singapore
had treated Australia with contempt.

"Singapore highly values good relations with Australia and with
Australian leaders," he said.

"The Singapore cabinet deliberated at length on Mr Nguyen's clemency
petition... unfortunately,
finally the cabinet decided that it could not justify making an
exception for Mr Nguyen.

"It had to treat Mr Nguyen consistently with similar past cases, and
apply the law equally to
Singaporeans and foreigners."

in the transit lounge the customs do not bother with the passengers.
all passsengers in the transit lounge are normally left on their own.

now how would the custom officers know that a transit passenger by the
name of nguyen van tuong is strapped with drugs in his body?

why would the custom officers be such a busybody to go all out to drag
a passenger bound for australia with his heroin?

it is obvious that someone must have tipped off the customs and wanted
them to nab him. who would have known van and his movements? unlikely
to be singapore. he is an unknown entity. who has an interest to see
him stop from entering australia?

who ever fixed up van please stand up.

Simple right? Australians themselves! Well at least the Australian
customs. It is so weird that the Ozzies demand clemency for somebody
bringing in drugs that has the potential to kill (or hook) hundreds and yet
demand death for a terrorist who had killed only scores in Bali. Double
standards? No doubt!

It is double standard at its best. When Amrozi was convicted in the
Bali bombing, Aussies, including the government wanted blood and push
for the death sentence. They should know that in both cases, many
lives were affected, not much difference there. And now because the
condemned is an Aussie, they wanted all countries to abolish the death
penalty, a hypocritical act to fool people around the world with their
false sense of humanity. Aussie should start taking the death penalty
more seriously .........

This is how it works. Two mules will be carrying drug to Australia. One
carries 400 grams, another carries by the kilos. The drug kingpin will tip
off the authorities on the one carrying less drug. While the police is busy
on the look out for the mule with the 400 grams, the one with the kilos
safely board the plane and off to Australia.

They should rent a 747 or buy a executive gulf stream jet. They all can then

then fly direct back to australia.

Maybe in the future they could set up a base in Burma and Afghans that
addicts can go there in style and stay there "forever".

Before it maybe beyond the reach of people to travel. But now with low fares
and budget airlines growing up around the world, it could be even cheaper
for druglords to fly the addicts from around the world and gather them at
one resort in the jungle of Burma and these can save them lots of moneys
and the dangers of laws on them from it.

UPDATE 1-Virginia governor stops milestone U.S. execution

(Updates with confirmation Warner stops execution)

By Andy Sullivan

WASHINGTON, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Virginia Gov. Mark Warner halted the
execution of a convicted
murderer who would have been the 1,000th person put to death in the
United States since the Supreme
Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, a spokesman said on
Tuesday.

"The governor commuted the death sentence to life in prison without
parole," spokesman Kevin Hall said.

At issue was uncertainty that Robin Lovitt was guilty because DNA
evidence in his trial had been illegally destroyed.

Lovitt was scheduled to die by lethal injection in a state prison on
Wednesday evening. Warner is a Democrat
considering a run for the presidency, and faced an issue that has
figured prominently in many past campaigns.

Since the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976 and
executions resumed in 1977, 999 people
have been executed in the United States. North Carolina and South
Carolina have scheduled executions later in the week.

Lovitt's case has attracted worldwide attention. Hall said earlier the
governor had received roughly 1,500 phone
calls, letters and e-mails from across the United States and several
foreign countries, almost all urging clemency.

Prominent conservatives have said the case could undermine public
support for the death penalty. Former
special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, who investigated then-President Bill
Clinton's extramarital affair with
Monica Lewinsky, argued Lovitt's case at an appeals-court hearing in
February.

Lovitt was sentenced to death in 1999 for killing a night manager in a
pool hall the previous year. He
claims another man committed the murder and his lawyers argued he could
have proved his innocence
if DNA evidence used at his trial had not been illegally destroyed.

Warner has denied each of the 11 previous clemency petitions that have
come before him as governor.

Since Lovitt will not be executed, Kenneth Boyd, scheduled to die
Friday in North Carolina and Shawn
Humphries on the same day in South Carolina, could be the 1,000th and
1,001st executions since the
end of what amounted to a decade-long moratorium on executions by the
states as the Supreme
Court wrestled with the issue.

After this episode, the druglords in australia not to use singapore as
transit point any more.
They should rent a 747 or buy a executive gulf stream jet. They all can then
travel in it in style and fly direct to Burma. They can land on a specially
paved landing strip in Burma to pick up their drugs, have fun and party and
then fly direct back to australia.
Aww...we generated revenue for boeing?
Can we ask for commission too?
LOL.

He was a drug dealer,carrying enough illegal drugs for 26,000 people.
He was in Singapore, at the airport.
He was faiurly apprehended and caught with illegal drugs, despite all
the warning signs.
he received a fair trial, and was found guilty.
He will get a fair execution Friday, and that will make one less drug
dealer on earth.

All hail to the good government of Singapore, more concerned with
making their state safe and clean for all humans.

Singapore defends death sentence
30/11/2005 6:39:03


Singapore's Prime Minister is defending his country's decision to
execute Australian
drug courier Van Nguyen on Friday.
The drugs trafficker is scheduled to be hanged in Changi Prison,
despite repeated
appeals from Canberra for clemency.


Lee Hsien Loong says drug trafficking deserves the death penalty, and
it remains a key
part of Singapore's criminal justice system. He says drug couriers
inflict evil on thousands of people.

Van Nguyen's lawyer Lex Lasry will make a final visit to Singapore
today but he is not
optimistic of a last minute change to the death sentence.

Meanwhile Singapore Airlines could face bans on refuelling and baggage
handling in Australia
if Van Nguyen is executed on Friday. The Transport Workers union will
decide on industrial action today.

Time runs out for drugs smuggler
29/11/2005 5:15:06

The mother of Australian death row inmate Van Nguyen has made one of
her last
visits to her son in a Singapore jail.
The Melbourne drug smuggler will be hanged on Friday morning.
Meanwhile the Australian version of the RSA is unhappy at a suggestion
that a minute's
silence be held on that day as a form of protest against the death
penalty.

The RSL says the moment should be reserved for commemorative services
honouring
those who gave their life while serving their country.
