Singapore to Execute Man for Cannabis Smuggling
Singapore is set to execute a man for conspiring to smuggle 2.2 pounds of cannabis into the country.
The man, who has been identified as Tangaraju Suppiah, was convicted in 2018 and sentenced to death.
Suppiah, a 46-year-old Indian national, was arrested in 2014 after he was found in possession of the cannabis.
He was later linked to two drug traffickers through a phone number used to coordinate the delivery of the drugs.
The High Court found Suppiah guilty of conspiring to traffic 2.2 pounds of cannabis and sentenced him to mandatory death in 2018.
Suppiah's lawyers have appealed the sentence, but it has been upheld by the Court of Appeal.
Suppiah is now scheduled to be executed on April 27, 2023.
His execution will be the first in Singapore since October 2022.
Singapore has some of the strictest drug laws in the world.
The death penalty is mandatory for drug trafficking offenses involving more than 500 grams of cannabis.
Activists have criticized Singapore's drug laws, saying that they are too harsh and that they disproportionately affect marginalized communities.
They have also argued that the death penalty is not an effective deterrent to drug trafficking.
The Singapore government has defended its drug laws, saying that they are necessary to protect public safety.
The government has also said that it is committed to rehabilitation, and that it offers drug treatment programs to those who are convicted of drug offenses.
The execution of Tangaraju Suppiah is likely to reignite the debate about Singapore's drug laws.
It remains to be seen whether the government will be willing to reconsider its stance on the death penalty for drug trafficking offenses..
