Civil society in Malaysia and Singapore today jointly called on the Singaporean President to grant clemency to Kho Jabing, a Sarawakian on death row in the island state who received an eleventh hour reprieve from the hangman’s noose in Singapore last Friday.
The death penalty continues to be used as a tool in the so-called “war on drugs”, with an alarming number of states across the globe executing people convicted on drug-related charges, in clear violation of international law, Amnesty International said ahead of the World Day against the Death Penalty (10 October).
Today’s Federal Court ruling confirming the constitutionality of Malaysia’s repressive Sedition Act is yet another blow to freedom of expression in the country and will only encourage the Malaysian authorities to continue their ongoing crackdown on peaceful dissent, said Amnesty International.
