AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL, STOP INTERFERING WITH S’PORE DEATH PENALTY LAWS

Singapore has laws and a legal system. But apparently, Amnesty does not feel that Singapore’s sovereignty rights should not be respected, and believe that their own ideals should supersede that Singaporean Laws.

STRAITS TIMES: RULE OF LAW MUST BE UPHELD BY ALL

Indonesia's decision to stick to the death penalty for convicted foreign drug offenders is fully within its sovereign rights. Also, given that Indonesian citizens are subject to the law, it is inconceivable that an exception could be made for others merely because they are foreigners.

APPEAL COURT UPHOLDS MAN’S DEATH SENTENCE

A 39-YEAR-OLD man who had been on death row for five years for knifing an elderly housewife more than 110 times in 2005 was yesterday denied the chance to escape the gallows. Muhammad Kadar is the first convicted murderer to have his bid for re-sentencing rejected by the Court of Appeal since laws were changed last year giving judges the discretion to impose a life sentence instead of the death penalty for certain categories of murder. Muhammad and his older brother Ismil first went on trial in 2006 for murdering their neighbour, Tham Weng Kuen, 69, at her Boon Lay flat while robbing her.

A Bangladeshi construction worker, who was convicted of murder, had escaped the hangman’s noose — but he still wanted to appeal against the sentence, which will see him being locked away behind bars for life. However, the court, led by Judge of Appeal Andrew Phang, dismissed Kamrul’s appeal, saying that his sentence could not be reduced as it was the “minimum” punishment for his charge.
