Singapore: Execution Eve

As convicted Australian drug smuggler Nguyen Van Tuong enters his last hours before his hanging, Singapore bloggers continue to write about his situation. Says Xeno Boy: It's all about face.

  • I will just pray that he goes to heaven
    I really can’t believe some1 die’g for one crime in his whole life, and that also didn’t affect any one human being, crazy but true

    My prayers goes to Van and his family. May his soul find a better place to rest than the harsh fate given to him…ending his life so young and no other ways to redeem his remorse. Although we all should be disciplined for our wrong doing but not to this extreme. The choice between death penalty and life in prison, I think Van would choose death knowing that there will never be a chance to get his life back and with sooooo many years to live, it would a every long punishment without any hope.
