So what are they going to do to you after you are dead ?? Hang you ?? :think:
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.. :dunno:
I think changi probably better.. free meal and accommodation :think:

Nothing more is given.
An ST article about the reason behind that:

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.
