The media and the death penalty: the limits of sentimentality, the power of abjection

Kennedy, Rosanne


In late 2005, the imminent execution in Singapore of a 25-year-old Vietnamese- Australian man, Van Nguyen Tuong, dominated the Australian media. He was arrested at Singapore’s Changi Airport in December 2002, for carrying 396 grams of heroin, while in transit from Cambodia to Australia. Singapore has a mandatory death sentence for anyone arrested carrying over 15 grams of heroin.
