|www.corpun.com : Country files : Singapore: judicial CP 1|
Please note that this is NOT THE REAL THING, but a staged reconstruction from "Prison Me No Way" (1999), a film made by the Singapore authorities to deter youngsters from crime. It seems reasonable to assume that this scene was actually filmed in a Singapore prison and that all the details of the equipment are authentic.
Presumably the chap playing the part of the prisoner is an actor, but one could imagine that the man shown wielding the cane might possibly be an actual prison officer who does this in real life.
HERE IS THE CLIP:
