Latest: Singapore single mother awaits death row in Malaysia for drug trafficking. On the pretext of a business trip to China, Iqah was handed a suitcase containing heroin arranged by her Nigerian boyfriend and was arrested by Malaysian Immigration. A campaign is underway to raise funds for the appeal. To find out more, read

We have also heard that since Vui Kong's appeal started, there has been an unofficial stay of execution for all prisoners on death row in Changi Prison, pending the decision of the court on Yong's case. As the case has been dismissed by the Court of Appeal, we anticipate a Changi gallows bloodbath in a scale not seen since the Pulau Senang uprising in 1965 when 18 men were convicted of murder and hanged in a single Friday morning.

Singapore, which routinely persecute dissenters and critics, continue to hang young drug runners while at the same time work closely with Burmese military generals, and has invested billions in business ties with Burma, one of the biggest heroin manufacturing countries the world.

Death penalty awareness campaign

Death penalty awareness campaign

Location: Pasir Ris Central
Date: 22 Jan 10

The truth about the mandatory death sentence is that it is a law that gives the offender no chance of requital, and Singapore is one of the few countries left in the world that continue to religiously execute drugs offenders.

When people realise how unfair such a law is, they will think twice about callously supporting the mandatory death penalty. Death should never be mandatory. Even murderers sometime get a chance to be convicted for manslaughter, which carries life imprisonment, why not drug traffickers?

In our outdoor campaign today at Pasir Ris Central we received some questions and feedback from the public.

"Is this an anti-drug campaign?"
This is a campaign to bring forth awareness on the issue of mandatory death sentence and the death penalty in general.

"Is this a pro-death penalty campaign?"
We all know too well there is no need for a campaign like that in pro-death penalty Singapore.

"How can we help?"
Step forward, come down to our activities, contact us. Help us with our campaign. Put this up on your blog and Facebook. Let people know about Yong Vui Kong. Educate yourself on the mandatory death penalty issue to know just how unfair it is for convicted drug traffickers.

"Do you guys get paid for this?"
We don't, but donations are welcomed.

"Are you from the Singapore Police Force?"
They are busy with other matters, such as arresting teenage drug offenders.
