The UN Human Rights Office for South-East Asia condemns the execution of Malaysian national Prabagaran Srivijayan. It noted the increase of executions in Singapore and was concerned about how they are conducted in "secretive" manner.

We also reiterate previous calls to the Singaporean government to immediately instate a moratorium on the use of the death penalty, which we believe has no place in the 21st century."
