Ravi – A short documentary

Filed under: Singapore, Videos

Documentary filmmaker Jon Keng followed human rights lawyer M Ravi to Malaysia, where he was visiting Mr Cheong Kah Pin, father of Cheong Chun Yin. We see Mr Cheong at home, still living alongside all Chun Yin’s belongings, constantly reminded of his son’s situation.

Through this film, Ravi reminds us that beyond all debates and reasoning, statistics and arguments, we should never forget that compassion is what makes us human.

YOU DO DRUGS YOU DIE, IS SIMPLE AS THAT AND NO STORY NEEDED! DO NOT FAKE IN THE NAME OF ‘JUSTICE’ AND IMAGINE IF EVERY ONE TRADE DRUGS AND BEG IGNORANCE? HEY, GUYS, DO SOMETHING BETTER THAN SCORING CHEAP POLITICAL POINTS LIKE THAT. SINGAPORE NEEDS GOOD PEOPLE WHO DO NOT PRETEND OR ACT LIKE THEY CARE FOR DRUG DEALERS? I DON’T AND I BELIEVE MANY SINGAPOREANS DON’T EITHER!

Hey, then why are the drug lords still scot free and are able to operate from Singapore? Burmese drug lords Lo Hsing Han and his son Steven Law operate all sorts of businesses here, why are they allowed to do so, when they are known all over the world for their drug dealings in Burma?

Also, the real drug lords are never caught. Their drug mules are. Look at the background of the drug mules, analyse it and you might realise that this is not just a legal issue but a socio-economical and educational issue.

Find out more about the investigation process and perhaps you will see that it is never transparent, and that it is even ok for the police not to investigate or trace the drugs back to the original sources even though leads were given by those who were caught because “It is immaterial” whether the investigation is carried out or not, according to a judge.

Most Singaporeans actually do not care/ do not know about the system behind the mandatory death penalty/ death penalty. A lot of them do not even know how MDP works, so how can they even form an opinion on whether they are pro or against it?

To be honest, many Singaporeans I have met also do not care about the death penalty (not pro or against). There are just 2 camps: the campaigners against DP/ MDP and those few out there who are for the DP/ MDP.

However, I have yet heard a logical explanation on why we need to keep the DP/ MDP. For me, I am against murder/ involuntary death caused by another human being with the intent to hurt, and so I am against the death penalty. What about those anti-murder/ suicide/ voluntary euthanasia who are for the DP/ MDP? I would love to hear about their reasons, to be honest.
