Singapore: Halt unlawful Singapore drug-related execution: Tangaraju s/o Suppiah

The authorities of Singapore are poised to execute Tangaraju s/o Suppiah on 26 April 2023. Tangaraju was convicted of abetting the trafficking of approximately 1kg of cannabis and sentenced to the mandatory death penalty. His conviction relies mainly on statements from his police interrogation, taken without a lawyer and interpreter present, and the testimony of his two co-accused, one of which had his charges dismissed. The government of Singapore must halt his execution, and commute his sentence and establish an official moratorium on all executions as a first step towards full abolition of the death penalty.
