Daily Lessons from Life 08 May 2017 - Nuclear terrorism in Sgp!!

"CNA 08 May 2017

SINGAPORE: A person who commits a fatal act of terrorism using radioactive material or nuclear explosive devices will face the mandatory death penalty under new laws passed in Parliament on Monday (May 8).

The legislation paves the way for Singapore’s ratification of the United Nations’ (UN) International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT).

Second Minister for Home Affairs Desmond Lee said that while the likelihood of a nuclear terrorist attack in Southeast Asia was remote, the rise of terror group Islamic State means Singapore cannot discount such a scenario and must treat the threat seriously.

“Especially when many countries, including those in our region, use nuclear energy, or are actively exploring the use of nuclear energy,” he added. “In February this year, Malaysian authorities arrested eight people connected to the theft of Iridium-192, a radioactive material which can be used to make dirty bombs.”

It will now be a criminal offence to intentionally and unlawfully use any radioactive material or nuclear explosive device, or use or damage a nuclear facility leading to the release of radioactive material, to achieve the effects of terrorism."

Indeed, anything is possible n nothing should be excluded.

With this law passed, at least we can avoid a similar situation like the CHC Trial where 2 if the 3 judges on the appeal decided to give more weight to one factor than the other factors!!

Scary thought yet not totally impossible!

Fight terrorism Sgp. Fight hard n without mercy.
