A death-row inmate held in solitary confinement in Vietnam for almost a year is pregnant and is seeking a pardon to give birth, a newspaper reported on Thursday.
The Lao Dong (Labour) newspaper quoted a police doctor as saying tests in September confirmed that convicted heroin trafficker Nguyen Thi Oanh, 39, was then 11 weeks pregnant.
Won't happen if they shoot her/them
The report said it was the first time that a death-row prisoner had become pregnant in Vietnam and that police were investigating how it had happened. This investigation sounds sticky. Can you spell G U A R D ? Or maybe the warden?
The husband? No wonder she is enticing the warden and the guards
Oanh's husband was serving a jail sentence at another prison in another province, the newspaper said.
"I'll give you some heroin for a quickie hon"
Oanh was due to face a firing squad this year after losing her appeal against the death sentence she received last year for possession of a billion dong ($63,000) worth of heroin. Will they shoot her anyway? Would shooting her be a human rights violation?
