施鞭刑。也可指鞭刑,即新加坡刑事法典的一项刑罚。

DEFINITION

Noun , Verb

Refers to caning as a form of punishment. Also refers to judicial caning, which is a form of corporal punishment under Singapore's Penal Code.

由来
在打鞭时, 行刑者用直径不超过1.27厘米的藤杖抽打犯罪人的臀部。只有新加坡最高法院有权力对未成年男性判处鞭刑。
  • 打鞭期间,必须有一名医务人员在场,以证明犯罪人的身体状况,可以承受打鞭。如果医务人员证明犯罪人身体不健康,则必须在执行过程中停止抽打。
  • 鞭刑只能施行在医学上能接受打鞭的男性罪犯身上,对于女性犯罪人和50岁以上的男性犯罪人则不适用。
  • 成年人士最多可被判处鞭24下,未成年人士则是最多10下。
  • ETYMOLOGY
    • The official responsible for carrying out the punishment uses a rattan cane not exceeding 1.27 cm in diameter to cane the offender’s bare buttocks. Underage males may be sentenced to caning only by the Supreme Court.

    • A medical officer has to be present during the caning to certify that the offender is in a fit state of health to be caned.  Caning must be stopped mid-execution if the medical officer certifies that the offender is not in a fit state of health to undergo the rest of the sentence. 

    • Caning is only carried out on male offenders who are medically fit to undergo the punishment. Female offenders and male offenders above 50 years old are exempted from judicial caning.  

    • Adults may be sentenced to a maximum of 24 strokes, while minors may be sentenced a maximum of 10 strokes.
