Singapore: Further Information: Executions resume – more may follow

Index Number: ASA 36/5462/2022

Hangings have resumed in Singapore for drug related offenses, after Abdul Kahar bin Othman was executed on 30 March. The previous day, the appeal for Malaysian national Nagaenthran Dharmalingam was rejected, and he is believed to be at risk of having his execution reset imminently. As several others have had their appeals rejected, it is feared that, several other hangings will follow. The government of Singapore must halt all executions, commute all existing death sentences and review national legislation to bring its use of the death penalty in line with international law and standards as urgent first steps towards full abolition of the death penalty.
