singapore to rule tuesday on disabled malaysians execution

Sumary of Singapore to rule Tuesday on disabled Malaysian’s execution:

  • KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Singapore’s top court will decide Tuesday on the fate of a Malaysian man on death row who is believed to be mentally disabled, his family and a rights group said Friday.
  • If the court dismisses the appeal, Nagaenthran, 33, would again be at immediate risk of execution, which could take place very quickly, said UK-based rights group Reprieve.
  • His brother Navinkumar Dharmalingam said in a statement issued through Reprieve that Nagaenthran’s mental state has “severely deteriorated.
  • “Naga is at risk of imminent execution even though he should be protected from the death penalty because of his intellectual disability, and as a victim of trafficking,” said Reprieve’s director Maya Foa.
  • “Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has made clear his commitment to champion the rights of persons with disabilities.
  • The Malaysian national was sentenced to death in November 2010 under Singapore’s strict anti-drug laws.
  • Previous attempts to reduce his sentence to life in prison or receive a presidential pardon failed, despite pleas from the international community and rights groups.
