BRITISH author Alan Shadrake was freed on Saturday from prison after serving time for contempt of court related to his book on the death penalty, an AFP photographer saw. Shadrake was whisked away from Changi prison in a van marked 'Immigration and Checkpoints Authority,' the photographer said. It was believed to be heading for the airport where Shadrake was expected to be deported later on Saturday to London, according to his lawyer M. Ravi. Shadrake went to jail on June 1 after losing his appeal against the six-week jail sentence. The 76-year-old also had to serve an additional two weeks as he could not afford to pay the $20,000 fine on top of the jail sentence, taking the term to a total of eight weeks. But Mr Ravi said his client was given remission for good behaviour and released earlier. -- AFP
