Dear reader,

I hope you have had a pleasant evening/day so far!

There is a man that is sentenced to death for smuggling in Singapore. If you would like to say something about it you can send the message down below to: anifah@kln.gov.my and a copy to s_r_nathan@istana.gov.sg.

Thanx in advance!

To
Minister of Foreign Affairs
Datuk Seri Anifah Amam

Your Excellency,

I have read about the case of Yong Vui Kong who was sentenced to death in 2009 for the possession of 47 grammes of heroin. At the time of his arrest he was only 19 years old. Singaporian law stipulates a mandatory death penalty for the possession of a certain amount of drugs. A mandatory death sentence will impede the investigation of all factors involved in establishing a correct punishment. It is also important to mention that as of today most countries in the world have abolished the death penalty either in practice or in law.

I am of the opinion that a person should always be given a second chance.

I urge to to put pressure on the President of Singapore in order for him to commute the death sentence of Yong Vui Kong.

Yours sincerely,
