Malaysia - judicial caning (page 2)
Comment by C. Farrell
In addition to the two video clips making a total of 22 minutes showing parts of a judicial caning session at Seremban prison in Malaysia, available for download here, we now have the full-length film of another judicial caning in Malaysia, from a different session but probably from the same prison, for which we previously had only a 50-second "edited highlights" version. This one lasts 4 minutes 25 seconds. This new version has improved picture quality. Also, the sound is much clearer, without the superimposed pop music of the earlier version.
As with the other JCP video clips, this is not for the squeamish.
In the earlier and heavily edited version of this film, only four of the ten strokes were shown. It seemed at the time that the prisoner was taking the punishment remarkably stoically.
Now we have the whole thing, we can see that the prisoner's reactions were edited out. In reality, he is responding strongly to the punishment as it proceeds, moaning after each stroke, and his body appears to be struggling against the frame to which he is tied.
