Singapore has executed a woman for the first time in almost 20 years after she was convicted of trafficking heroin.

Saridewi Binte Djamani, 45, was sentenced to death in 2018 for trafficking around 30 grams of heroin.

Saridewi was born in Singapore in 1978 – but was she married?

Saridewi Binte Djamani husband: Was she married?

Information about Saridewi Binte Djamani husband is scanty as we did not find any information that suggested that she was married.

Also, there is no information about her relationship life as we do not know if she was dating anyone.

There are no records of Saridewi Djamani’s children, making it unknown whether or not he had kids.

Saridewi Binte Djamani arrest, sentence and execution

Saridewi binte Djamani (1978 – 28 July 2023) was a Singaporean who was sentenced to death in 2018 for smuggling 30.72g of diamorphine (pure heroin).

Saridewi, who committed the offence on 17 June 2016, was arrested on the same day together with her accomplice at her HDB block in Anchorvale Road, Sengkang.

Saridewi, who had a long history of drug abuse, did not deny that she sold the drugs but she stated that a majority of the diamorphine was meant for her own consumption while less than half of the diamorphine was for sale, and she only stocked up the drug supply for the fasting month Ramadan.

However, the trial court disbelieved Saridewi’s account and sentenced her to the mandatory death penalty for diamorphine trafficking.

Saridewi’s accomplice, a 41-year-old Malaysian, received a life term with 15 strokes of the cane since he only acted as a courier and thus played a lesser role in the crime.

Saridewi lost her appeals, and after spending five years on death row, she was hanged on 28 July 2023.

Saridewi was reportedly the first woman scheduled to be hanged in Singapore in nearly 20 years after Yen May Woen in March 2004.

As Saridewi’s execution drew near, the government of Singapore was met with international criticism and pleas for clemency.
