Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday signed amendments toughening penalties for voluntary surrender, desertion and refusal to fight by up to 10 years in prison, just days after ordering a partial mobilisation. The announcement of the mobilisation of 300,000 reservists on Wednesday sparked protests across Russia and a fresh exodus out of the country. A day before, Russia's parliament had approved amendments toughening penalties for military crimes in times of mobilisation. Now that the legislation is signed, servicemen who desert, surrender «without authorisation», refuse to fight or disobey orders can face up to ten years imprisonment. Looting will be punishable by 15 years imprisonment. The changes come as the Kremlin seeks to bolster the ranks of its army fighting a military operation in Ukraine. A separate law, also signed on Saturday, facilitates access to Russian citizenship for foreigners who enlist in the Russian army. Foreigners who spend at least a year in the Russian army will be eligible to request citizenship, bypassing the normal requirement for five years of residency in the country. This measure seems primarily aimed at Central Asian migrants from former Soviet republics, who are typically hired for strenuous, low-paying jobs. On Tuesday Moscow mayor Sergey Sobyanin announced the opening of a recruitment centre in the Sakharovo migration centre, an important passage point for migrants. Even before the law came into effect, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan had warned their citizens not to take part in any armed conflicts. © Agence France-Presse

SINGAPORE - The turning point in Mr Aman Singh Rahman's life came in 2015, when he was caught by the police at a music festival with enough marijuana to smoke a joint, just months before enlisting in national service. Only 18 years old at the time, he realised he wanted to change. This year, the 25-year-old graduated from Republic Polytechnic, and he was among a record 782 students who received the Sinda Excellence Awards on Saturday (Sept 24). But the road to graduation was long and hard for Mr Aman, who had dropped out of the Institute of Technical Education a year before his skirmish with the law, after skipping classes and exams to play computer games. Hanging out with friends he met online also introduced him to the addiction that led to his arrest. Resolving to stay clean while awaiting his sentence, Mr Aman volunteered for as many duties as possible after enlisting in the Singapore Civil Defence Force. «I knew I had to do something because at any moment I could go to prison, so I tried to prove my worth,» he said.
Pranks aren't always harmless, and it's not all fun and games, especially when you're a clueless traveller in a foreign country.

It is not known when he flew to Singapore or how long he stayed. The content creator, who has 2.4 million followers on the platform and 2 million subscribers on YouTube, was travelling in a group of five other friends.
