Singapore Sling - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (261 words)
The Singapore Sling is a cocktail that was invented by Mr.
Ngiam Tong Boon for the Raffles Hotel in Singapore sometime between 1910 and 1915.
In most other establishments around the world, even in Singapore, a simpler recipe, featuring club soda, is used.
Singapore's deadly sling - Opinion - theage.com.au (1001 words)
Nguyen's lawyers did not pursue this obvious defence because the Singapore courts — which adopt the airs and trappings of their British colonial ancestry but are in practice a deeply politicised law unto themselves — have flatly refused such arguments in the past.
The Singapore judges ignored evidence that the arresting and investigating police had themselves broken the law by denying Nguyen Australian consular support before he was interrogated, and had failed to secure the evidentiary drugs that showed significant and unexplained variations when weighed at different times.
Singapore's mandatory sentencing regime also meant no consideration could be given to mitigating circumstances or the character of the defendant.
