Justice Malasian Style

Strapped on a wooden frame, a prisoner braces himself for the brutal onslaught.

Within moments of the first blow being struck by the cane-wielding official, the skin on his buttocks breaks and the raw wound begins to open.

Lash after lash after lash follows until his flesh is reduced to a bloody mess. With each blow, the body flinches and there is a cry.

Prepare to suffer: The official raises his cane high in the air to deliver the first blow to the prisoner

The caning was meted out in a jail in Malaysia, where the authorities insist that it is a legitimate punishment.

However, a video of the flogging has caused an outcry after it was posted on the Internet and seen around the world.

In images condemned by Malaysia's own lawyers, the unidentified male prisoner, thought to be a drug dealer, is shown being struck 20 times on his bare buttocks with a rotan - a bamboo-like cane.

The Bar Council of Malaysia, which represents 8,000 lawyers, has called for such punishment to be abolished and stepped up its campaign after highlighting the video images.

Impact: The prisoner is heard crying out in pain on the video, which has angered human rights campaigners
The six-minute clip, entitled Malaysian Caning Judicial Corporal Punishment, was posted on www.lifeleak.com, an international video-sharing site.

"We are against the death penalty and corporal punishment," said council president Ambiga Sreenevasan.

"It's against all international human rights norms and the various conventions on torture. It's inhumane and degrading."

However, deputy internal security minister Fu Ah Kiow defended the punishment. He said the video clip was recorded at a local prison and is used in drug prevention and other anti-crime campaigns.

He would not reveal details of the prisoner involved. But the man was understood to be a drug dealer who received dozens of lashes, as well as a lengthy prison term.

In the video, he is seen being led away after the beating then shown undergoing a medical examination.

The minister added: "The video is a means to educate the public and to show how hideous caning can be. It is a deterrence for drug traffickers and drug addicts.

"Somehow somebody duplicated it and posted it on the website, but it's not done by our officials. It is for education and training purposes, there's no big deal about it."

Flogging is widely used in Malaysia for various offences including drug crimes, rape and illegal entry into the country.

"Inhumane"?

He received medical treatment.

Should happen on every village green after the Christians have been to church.

It strikes me as a more effective way to ensure that the convict does not re-offend, whilst also acting as a deterrent to others, than locking him up in a cell with a TV and Playstation and access to as much cannabis as he likes for 3 months as we do over here. Oh, and of course compensating him when he proves that his human rights have been breached when he is denied access to violent pornography...

This sort of punishment, preferably in public, might have the effect of making the filth and scum inhabiting our streets consider their mindless violence. It will never happen sadly - too many limp-wristed, do-gooders and guardianistas !!

It is nice to see the lawyers want to protect the rights of our children to die from drug overdoses.

All,

I believe that I'm right in saying that Singapore has the lowest reoffence rate in the world... and in the main because they use similar techniques. The figures speak for themselves IMHO.

Just think how better we could spend the £40,000+ a year it costs to house inmates, if they learn't the lesson earlier.

What sort of salary do you get for wielding the cane?

Other perks look good. Physical exercise, regular hours, helping society, plenty of work, job satisfaction
 
#11
I would like to see the re-offending rates from those that were punished by capital punishment..........Anyone have them to hand?

Solicitors could share a percentage the punishment in the case of a "not-guilty" plea. A sort of adaption of the "No win no fee" principle. It could reduce court costs - " ..err my client pleads guilty as hell your honour"

I'll say he was bloody lucky to get away with just caning. Just next door in Thailand, he would have been shot. In Saudi Arabia he would have lost his head. If they brought back corporal punishment in the UK I would fully support it. I was caned in South Africa in school and it certainly drove the lesson home.

We need to start treating criminals as criminals and not as victims of society. There would be a lot less petty crime and lack of respect for authority if a short sharp shock was delivered. Bloody Lefty do-gooders have ruined society!

Too true, on a TV prog a year or so ago a dodgy seller of fitted kitchens hereabouts boasted that he regarded a short stretch of bird as the best way to lose a few pounds and get fit.

He did go on to say that the first stretch handed to any young villain should be a good long one, as the short one's don't put them off.

Having their arrses flayed might make a few think twice before offending.

Don't have the figures to hand but I can say as someone who has lived in S'pore now for 3 1/2 years that you do feel incredibly safe here. Crime just isn't accepted as it is in the UK and yes the noose and the rattan cane are influencing factors.

Personally after a trip to the UK in June I was glad to get back here - watching chavs behave as they do was repulsive & at times I felt concerned for the safety of my family - even my 5yo daughter was disgusted by the behavior.

I think that I could afford a couple of grand a year plus I'll supply my own canes :twisted:

British Justice should take a step back in time, and issue punishments that fit crime.

Few Examples.

1. Tea Leafs (cut off digits/ re offenders hand).

2. Drug pushers (public stoning).

3. Pedos (Castration/Let the parents deliver own punishment).

We all like to bend the rules now and again but we have to draw the line let the scum rot in hell.

Wasn't there some yank teenager who vandalised a car there the recipient of similar punishment a few years ago? He stated afterwards that he wouldn't re-offend. Seems a good deterent to me.
