You think that is swift? Well, for the U.S. it is.
Beijing has started using Death Vans so they can be executed pretty quickly. Yuan Baojing was put to death I think in March (Beijing's wealthiest Billionaire) 15 minutes after the sentencing.
The story in our paper went something like this: The sentence was read, he was hauled into a van, driven to a funeral home a couple of miles from the city, shoved into one of the police "death vans", given lethal injection (this all within 15 minutes of the sentencing) and cremated.
3 hours after the sentence was read, his ashes were handed to his wife with a bill for $2,500.
