Who is Justin?
Singapore ― Justin Lee, 17, who killed himself on Sept 16 while facing drug-trafficking charges, was no stereotypical unintelligent juvenile offender, according to a letter that his grieving mother wrote to Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.

Ms Cecilia Ow, 51, a senior lecturer at a polytechnic, posted the heart-wrenching letter to Instagram on Tuesday (Oct 12), calling for a thorough review of how the police handle juveniles under criminal investigation, and describing as “brutal” her son’s treatment at the hands of anti-narcotics officers.
