        This kind of thing happens all over Asia as well as allover the world daily. Seems like he only has himself to blame for doing such a silly thing.

        Taiwan like many Asian countries carries out the death penalty for drug trafficking so hope he gets good representation for his own sake. – You’d think at 35 years of age that he’d be smarter than that.
