Ladies and Gentlemen,
If you were to ask Singapore's notorious Changi Prison whether the Swiss graffiti artist, Oliver Fricker who is there serving sentience has received the beatings (canings), like cowards they are not going to say. You see, just like North Korea, everything is secret in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore island. I reckon, as Fricker is already there for the last 2 moths or so, and his appeal has failed, with his sentence increased, there is a possibility he has already been tortured.
I recall when I was in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore prison in 2008, my Communist Chinese cell mate who was to receive the beatings because he overstayed his visa, was to have received it after about a month in jail. Going by this, it would appear that Fricker has either already been beaten or is about to be beaten.
Singapore, keeping mum about these beatings, hope that the public would forget about what he is going through. Out of sight and out of mind, is what Singapore wants. We should not let them get away with it.
Please give a thought to Oliver Fricker. Think of the excruciating pain he will suffer at the hands of this so called first world city state. He would be strapped naked to a wooden frame. A trained muscular athletic prison officer would use maximum force to beat his bare buttocks with a cane three times. Each time, the skin will tear and blood will flow. Even pieces of flesh would be dislodged. Fricker would scream with pain, but he is strapped to the trestle. At each beating, unable to bear the pain, he may move his buttocks but the prison officer will readjust him for the next bloody stroke. After the beatings, he would be helped to his cell, unable to walk. He would be unable to go to the bathroom. His buttocks will swell to 3 times the size and completely turn blue and black. Eventually it will heal but the scars will remain.
All all this pain for painting graffiti on a train.
Please give Oliver Fricker a thought.
