Abolish Death Penalty Petition poster

Abolish the death penalty in Malaysia

The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights. It is the premeditated and cold-blooded killing of a human being by the state. According to Amnesty International’s Death Sentences and Executions 2013 & 2014 report, 990 people are on death row as at end 2014, including 648 sentenced for drug trafficking offences.



Since August, at least eight people have been charged for so-called ‘seditious’ comments under Malaysia’s draconian Sedition Act. Write to Malaysia’s authorities, calling on them to repeal the Sedition Act immediately.


Calling on Malaysia to ratify the UN Convention Against Torture
