    Default Singaporean attempted suicide in JB

    Presumably happened on Saturday 12 Apr 14 morning in JB.

    Singaporean man critical after torching himself

    No idea why he choose to do so in JB.

    There are jails in the other world.

    They will burn a paper effigy of a policeman to effect the arrest.

    Let's check the Penal Code for that. But in case you are unsuccessful with your suicide they will charge you. Happened in the past to a few people here in SG.

    Yep, I believe the aim is to deter people, not to actually charge them.
    But in any case, if they are desperate enough to commit suicide.. then..

    Nothing more is given.
    An ST article about the reason behind that:
    http://www.straitstimes.com/premium/...eeded-20140228
    Seems to be something typical Asian that "individuals are not sovereign over their own bodies". Something like that is not seen in any European or American law where the rights of the individuals are valued higher.

    He was depressed from a series of failed business ventures and just jumped bail from narcotics offences.
