Shadrake jailed for six weeks in Singapore

Reports say that UK author Alan Shadrake has been sentenced to six weeks of jail by a Singapore court due to “insulting the judiciary in a book he wrote about the death penalty”.

He also faces a defamation trial and has to pay a $20,000 fine.

“Once a Jolly Hangman” is the name of his book in which he criticizes the fact that the death penalty has a lack of impartiality.

Although the author apologized in court, the High Court Judge Quentin Loh called it “nothing more than a tactical ploy in court to obtain a reduced sentence”.

According to Shadrake’s lawyer, M Ravi, the author has no money to pay the fine, is in ill health and is disappointed for not receiving any support for British public.
