Roslan bin Bakar

Roslan bin Bakar was arrested on 18 July 2008. He was convicted of trafficking 96.07g of diamorphine and 76.37g of methamphetamine and sentenced to death on 22 April 2010.

To this day, Roslan has maintained his innocence, saying that he had not been at the scene of the crime. He was convicted mostly based on testimony, and not concrete evidence. He says that the others who testified against him only testified to escape the capital charges themselves.

  1. Terrorism and drug trafficking share a common intent – to harm innocent lives. Although the rationale behind their intent differ but I feel it’s no justifiable to allow those linked with terrorism get away easily as compared with the drug traffickers. So, convicted terrorists should be thankful being given ‘second chances’ to blend with society and get on with their precious lives after serving time.
    If we can come up with a good reason to support second chances for drug traffickers I am sure the law can be revised. Take the presence of casinos in our country. We all know gambling brings harm if not curtailed. But the safety nets are no guarantee that lives will not be destroyed.
    Maybe thought should be given on how to prevent drug trafficking in similar methology as terrorism and gambling(without mandatory death sentences)
