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.

Statement by SADPC regarding the judgement of Singapore's High Court on 13 August 2010

Statement by SADPC regarding the judgement of Singapore's High Court on 13 August 2010

The Singapore Anti-Death Penalty Campaign (SADPC) wishes to express its deepest disappointment over the judgement of the High Court on Friday, 13 August 2010, stating that the President has no discretion in clemency appeals and that the Cabinet has sole authority in the matter.

We have also found it very disquieting that the Court regards the remarks by the Law Minister as not being pre-judicial to the clemency process.

Furthermore we are not too pleased to learn that Mr. Siew Kum Hong, former Nominated Member of Parliament, has put on record that the whole process has been fair to Yong Vui Kong. 

We sincerely invite Mr. Siew and anyone who disagrees with us on this issue to feel free to turn up at our future forums and events to have their contrary views in line with the Minister's heard.
