A South African woman is due to be executed by the Chinese government for smuggling drugs into that country, eNews channel reported on Sunday.
Janice Bronwyn Linden (35) from KwaZulu-Natal, who was caught carrying three kilograms of crystal methamphetamine in November 2008, is due to be executed by lethal injection on Monday.
Linden has exhausted all possible appeal processes and is not aware of her impending execution as is the practice of the Chinese government, the report said.
The condemned are only told on the morning of the execution.
Two of Linden’s sisters are in China and will be allowed an hour with her before she is put to death. They are expected to fly home through Hong Kong after seeing their sister. — Sapa
