Aussie to face caning in Singapore?
A Perth man is stranded in Singapore and may be caned after being arrested for swearing on a Tiger Airways flight. 47 year old Bruce Griffiths was detained in Singapore on the fourth of January.
The West Australian reports he's been charged under Singapore's 'outrage of modesty' laws. Mr Griffiths is believed to have woken a sleeping passenger when he got up to allow a woman to visit the toilet. The two men are then alleged to have sworn at each other.
The crew stepped in and Mr. Griffiths was handed over to local Police. If he's found guilty, the punishments can include up to two years jail, a fine, or 24 lashes with the rattan cane.

I would like to see the Singapore system of caning and gaol sentences imposed on the drunken and other drug affected feral and other grunge elements with their foul language and violence roaming our streets at all hours here in Australia. I have had enough of it all with them and our utterly gutless self aggrandising politicians et al.Sandra M Wednesday 23 January, 2013 - 3:48 PM
FYI and interest, here is a fairly up-to-date list of offences in Singapore which can attract a caning sentence.
