The kidnapping Act

http://statutes.agc.gov.sg/aol/sear...Id:d88217e2-2a03-4c8b-bdc8-283714305185;rec=0

In particular this clause in the Act:

"Abduction, wrongful restraint or wrongful confinement for ransom

3. Whoever, with intent to hold any person for ransom, abducts or wrongfully restrains or wrongfully confines that person shall be guilty of an offence and shall be punished on conviction with death or imprisonment for life and shall, if he is not sentenced to death, also be liable to caning."

In China, kidnapping for ransom comes with an automatic death sentence, unless the perps give themselves up without harming the victim. They are now pushing for death sentence for child abduction and human trafficking.

The nightmare of all rich persons.
In the 50s and 60s these kidnaps were so common that the new self-government enacted the Kidnapping Act. The Similar laws were introduced to combat against gangsters and lightning industrial strikes.
