Singapore: Further information: Further executions set

Hangings have resumed in Singapore for drug related offenses, after Abdul Kahar bin Othman was executed on 30 March and Malaysian national Nagaenthran Dharmalingam was executed on 29 April, while on 28 April a third one was stayed. The executions of Malaysian national Kalwant Singh and another man are scheduled for 7 July. Both men were convicted of and sentenced to the mandatory death penalty for drug trafficking, in violation of international law and standards. The government of Singapore must halt these 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.
