Malaysia - judicial caning (page 2)

More Malaysian judicial canings -- Two clips. Clip 2 is New!


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 here, this is 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.


NOTE: The videos advertised at the end of this clip as "Related media" have nothing to with corporal punishment, and are put there by the external video hosting company, not by me. They are entirely outside the control of this website. There is no reason why you should find them of the smallest interest, and they may be actually offensive. If you click on them, you will be taken away from

CLIP 2 OF 2 New!

In 2014 a video of a completely different 10-stroke rotan punishment was found. It is not known when it was carried out, possibly not recently. In broad terms it is very similar to the one above, but the operator is leaving a longer period of time between several of the strokes. Unfortunately this video has had music added, and in the latter part there is a voiceover commentary. There is nothing we can do about that.
