I was too upset to post last night.
I don’t usually get into politics in my blog, but hey it’s my blog and I’ll cry if I want to. Yesterday, a young Melbourne man, who did a bad thing for a good reason, was executed in Singapore. Despite the pleas of the Premier, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Prime Minister and so on. Despite the fact that Singapore is a first world country, and despite the fact that the death penalty is a clear breach of international human rights law.
Vigils were held, candles were lit, prayers were said. And the young man died.
Rest in peace, Van.
