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.

Is this the Young PAP's interpretation of human rights?

 Following Young PAP member Michael Rebaczonok-Padulo's piece, we are curious to know if the following story depicts his interpretation of human rights for the victims and their family. If that is not the case, then Mr Rebaczonok-Padulo seems to have confused human rights with recourse for victims or their families. 

While discussion on the mandatory death sentence for drug offenders rages on the Internet, Singapore's ruling party and its youth wing have kept uncomfortably quiet and the mainstream media has not taken this issue up for a proper public debate. 

The real issue which the Young PAP have skirted is the arbitrary application of the mandatory death penalty for drug offenders, which leaves judges no room to give the offender a lesser sentence than what the law stipulates, unless of course, if he or she happens to be a German

We would like to hear the Young PAP's stand on this.


Latest update: It is most appalling to see that Young PAP has added an addenum to the article at 1.32am, 23 Oct, many hours after it was first published. If the Young PAP cannot take responsibility for what it publishes on its site, then why publish it at all?
