Malaysia: Decisive action against death penalty needed after second pardon announced in a month

, Index number: ACT 50/5802/2017

Amnesty International has today urged the Malaysian authorities to take prompt action to halt all executions and to abolish the death penalty, following the announcement – the second in less than a month − that a man on death row has been pardoned. News of the commutation of the death sentence imposed on Shahrul Izani bin Suparman is welcome, but is in stark contrast with brothers Suthar Batumalai and B. Rames Batumalai, who remain at imminent risk of execution.
