British author Alan Shadrake freed from Singapore jail this morning: witness


British author Alan Shadrake was freed Saturday from a Singapore prison after serving time for contempt of court related to his book on the death penalty, an AFP photographer saw.

Shadrake was whisked away from Changi prison in a van marked "Immigration and Checkpoints Authority," the photographer said.

It was believed to be heading for the airport where Shadrake was expected to be deported later Saturday to London, according to his lawyer M. Ravi. Full story
