A farmer in Middlesex Suffolk builds and exports gallows to African dictatorships, where they are used to execute dissidents and others who’ve been railroaded through corrupt judicial systems. He’s been condemned by Amnesty International, but insists that “business is business,” and some people deserve the death penalty. His business will be outlawed by a new EC regulation in July.
The execution equipment he says he sells ranges from single gallows, at about £12,000 each, to “Multi-hanging Execution Systems” mounted on lorry trailers, costing about £100,000.
My first reaction to reading that was to think that one must be able to make them much cheaper than that 😮
