Briton charged in Singapore drugs probe

A second Briton is facing drugs charges as police continue to investigate a drug ring in Singapore.

Andrew Veale, 40, is the latest in a string of expatriates to be charged with consumption of a controlled substance after police smashed a cocaine ring that reportedly included company executives and members of Singapore's high society.

Veale previously worked as a broker with British firm Credittrade, a newspaper in the country reported last week.

Nigel Bruce Simmonds, 35, British editor of the Singapore Tatler allegedly purchased amphetamines from the ring and was charged with possession of narcotics on October 8.

Ten others have been charged with drug abuse or possession.

Singapore has some of the world's strictest - and most thoroughly enforced - drug laws, including a mandatory death penalty by hanging for anyone caught with more than 15 grams of heroin or more than 500 grams of marijuana.
