Singapore deports British author Shadrake

British author Alan Shadrake has been released from a Singaporean jail after serving five weeks for contempt of court. Shadrake's lawyer, Mr M Ravi, said yesterday his 76-year-old client was deported and flew to London after his release. Shadrake's book is critical of Singapore's use of the death penalty for crimes such as drug trafficking. He was jailed after Singapore's High Court ruled that passages in his book titled Once a Jolly Hangman: Singapore Justice in the Dock impugn the impartiality, integrity and independence of the judiciary.
