how to die when you're corrupt

in Japan:
Agriculture Minister Toshikatsu Matsuoka committed suicide suicide after a series of scandals.CNN story.

in China:
Zheng Xiaoyu, former head of SFDA (the agency responsible for drug approvals) from 1998 to 2005, has been sentenced to death for accepting over $800,000 in bribes (CNN story).

well ... just different.

Or, as we say in German: Wer will, der darf. Wer nicht will, der muss.

(did I already say that I consider capital punishment unethical? but who listens to me?)
