Cheong Chun Yin has been convicted of trafficking 2.7 kg of heroin into Singapore. To this day, he maintains he did not know that the bag he was carrying contained drugs. His family believe him. Our courts, obviously, do not.
It’s hard to know where the truth lies. What we do know though is that the police weren’t exactly thorough in their investigations. The trial judge said as much. He also made it clear that it didn’t matter. No wonder the family is upset.
