    it just seems like they did a lousy job of trying to prove he was mentally ill

    kind of like they thought it up after he was detained

    like maybe he wasn't actually diagnosed and they brought someone in to try and convince them that he was

    but to be clear, I do agree that China's punishment is very harsh for the crime
    however I don't really see how my opinion on the matter is going to matter to them or anyone else

    Whether or not the claim is a load of shit, China are being a bunch of horsefuckers

    still, if he wasn't mentally ill (which I'm really starting to doubt) then he was just colossally stupid to be smuggling drugs into China when it's well known what the punishment is, and I would have little sympathy for someone that stunningly stupid

    so off with his head for smuggling 3kg of heroin then

    good good

    in a country that's quite open and honest about that being the penalty, yes from a practical standpoint you are getting what you deserve for being so stunningly stupid

    it's not like he was executed for smuggling refugees out of the country
    I do agree that the punishment seems harsh to me, but it's no secret that this is the punishment for the crime
    so it's pretty fucking easy to avoid it by...NOT SMUGGLING DRUGS INTO CHINA

    Wait, from what I can tell from the article he had no idea he was smuggling drugs.

    Granted you don't very well take strange luggage at an airport but it's already been established he wasn't the sharpest tool

    You're acting like he was just given a bag of heroin and told "take this to China"

    many of the articles are intimating that yes, he was aware except it was take this to China and we'll make you a pop star

    I like the Chinese embassy's statement

    "The amount of heroin he brought into China was 4,030g, enough to cause 26,800 deaths"

    The quote on the front page is so drenched in arrogance, it's incredible. We need a Chinese villain in the next Bond movie, enough with these French and Russian guys.

    Also, if they're saying it's enough to cause x number of deaths and that's justification, what do they do if you're caught with a gun with a full clip? Ooh, thirteen bullets, that's over a dozen murder charges.

    Akmal had a lifelong history of very strange behaviour, and Reprieve uncovered vital evidence that he suffered from an extremely serious mental condition.

    A preliminary medical report by clinical psychologist Dr Peter Schaapveld suggests that the odd decisions leading up to Akmal’s offence were most likely influenced by some form of delusional psychosis.
    Akmal's first appeal which was heard by the District Court in Urumqi on Tuesday 26 May; has been denied, as was his appeal to the Supreme People's Court. At no point was his mental health considered, despite the best efforts of his lawyers. The Chinese courts repeatedly refused to allow Akmal to be assessed by a psychiatrist.

    The most important issue in the case is Akmal’s mental health. The Chinese authorities originally indicated a willingness to allow him to be assessed by a local doctor, but the court subsequently refused. Reprieve immediately sought permission for British psychologist Dr Schaapveld to see Akmal, and paid for him to fly to China - where he too was inexplicably refused access.

    Man. This sounds weird.

    Alright, so, the Chinese executed a guy smuggling heroin.

    The family claims said guy was mentally ill.

    Said family does not monitor the mans actions, as he takes a strangers suitcase into a foreign country. If that was indeed what happened.

    Shouldn't the family monitor him, or pay for someone to watch him so he doesn't do this kind of stuff if he is mentally ill?

    Maybe I'm just way too tired for this kind of stuff.
