:Good riddence I say {:soso_e100:} They won't be able to ruin others lives now will they!!!

Human rights groups have branded Chinese authorities 'exploitative' and 'utterly barbaric' after the state televised the final moments of four men before they were executed.

Notorious southeast Asian drug lord Naw Kham and three accomplices were killed by lethal injection one year on from being captured in an international manhunt.

Naw Kham was among the most infamous criminals in southeast Asia after being blamed for the murder of 13 Chinese sailors in an ambush on the Mekong River in October 2011.

At 2.19pm local time, 44-year-old Mr Naw, along with Hsang Kham, Yi Lai and Zha Xika, were bundled into security vans in Kunming, in southwestern China, before reportedly issuing lethal injections to all four men just before 3pm.

The Yunnan province Public Security Bureau then posted online a message simply saying: "Execution implemented."

As well as televising the criminals' final moments, China's state-run CCTV news channel also ran a face-to-face interview with Naw Kham from February 27, in which he said he was 'afraid of death' and 'missed his mum'.


Chinese TV also showed the sentencing of Mr Naw and his three accomplices last November (Rex)



Human rights charities today hit out at the decision to broadcast the moments before the execution.

Clare Algar, executive director of Reprieve, a charity who enforce the human rights of prisoners, told Yahoo! today: "It is completely outrageous for the Chinese Government to parade these people on television before killing them.

This is nothing compared to the number of people killed at the hands of these barbaric criminals.
And that is nothing compared to the wasted human lives and the deaths caused by the street
drugs they sell. Four dead drug lords... that's a start.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

In most cases I am opposed to the death penalty, with the exceptions of serial rapists, serial paedophiles, drug barons, mass murderers, and those who commit acts of indiscriminate and extreme violence upon innocent civilians (ie terrorists and those who order war crimes).

In this case I say good bye to bad rubbish. If there is a hell, long may you linger there as you brought enough pain and suffering to the families of those you preyed upon, namely drug addicts.

Either one is opposed to any killing of people by people. Or one is selective, immoral and opportu ...
On the day these four people were murdered legally, 2 Chinese drug smugglers were apprehended by Australian authorities. They brought the biggest haul of amphetamines in history to Australia and won't be executed for their crime.

I'd be quite happy to see them swing for the importation of amphetamines or any other narcotic. Addiction is one thing but those who profit from the misery of others deserve no mercy.

They killed far fewer than the Marxists of their own country ever did.

That is irrelevant.

The fact is that they were serious criminals who had no respect for humanity and the society in which they operated and happily dealt out death and drug to line their own pockets.
