Singapore: Fair trial concerns must lead to urgent review of all death penalty cases

, Index number: ACT 50/3092/2020

Amnesty International is gravely concerned by new information suggesting that officials of the Singapore Prison Service have been forwarding private communications from death row prisoners to the Attorney General’s Chambers, as the judicial proceedings in the cases were ongoing. This violates the rights of the prisoners and casts another dark shadow on the flawed death penalty system in the country. Amnesty International calls for an immediate halt to all executions and a review of all cases, as first urgent steps towards abolition of the death penalty in Singapore.
