Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan has said he supports the use of the death penalty for some drug offenders.

Chan, whose son was jailed for drugs offences, said that with drugs “you’re hurting thousands of young children”.

Jaycee Chan spent six months in prison in China after police found marijuana in his home.

Jackie Chan is Singapore’s first celebrity anti-drug ambassador. He was named official Narcotics Control Ambassador by Chinese police in 2009.

Both Singapore and China have enforced capital punishment for drug trafficking.

In an interview with journalists conducted in both English and Mandarin, he said drugs were not only hurting young people, they were hurting his family.
