At the airport in Taipei (at least the last time I transited the airport back in 2001) there was a sign that said Death for possession of drugs. Maybe they removed the sign, huh?

Drugs destroy lives, not just those of the users once they make their decisions to actively use them, but the lives of families, friends and loved ones. They place an extra burden on health services and take away from those who have lived honest, decent lives and miss out as a result of the selfishness of others. And so it goes. Drugs destroy lives and society on virtually all levels. As for the person, he made a choice, maybe a bad one. After all the decisions you make do determine your destiny. But when and where shall we draw the line and absolve criminals of their responsibilities when they gamble on making money off the money of others. I don't feel sorry for him. What goes around comes back and he got what he deserved.

Taiwan should send it's scum criminals to mainland China! At least on the mainland they are not shy about the death penalty to scum drug dealers like this.

Fujian/ taiwan.. Same snakeheads. All tje guys that get caught seem to be from that particular ethnic group. I knew a guy who was chauffeur for one of the big Taiwanese bosses. Ended up with the Taiwan police and army raiding a cargo ship in Taipei that was running illegals from the mainland in and god knows what out. With a culture descended from the Kuomintang who plundered China, Taiwan can be a very dangerous and murky place. Great fun though.

I sure that drugs from Afghanistan. This is result of USA politics: drugs to EU and Asian countries. I hope that Asian countries remember 'opium wars' in China and stop drug attack. Drugs is catastrophe!

If convicted, Fan could face a minimum 20 years in jail under Taiwanese law.

Yeah, I thought Taiwan had the death penalty for drug possession too, Tom.
