The Execution of Mr Nagaenthran by the Singapore Government. 8 November 2021, 10:15PM MYT

In defiance of its own laws and the UN Convention of Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the Singapore government intends to hang a man with borderline functioning intelligence on Wednesday 10 November for smuggling 42.72 grams of diamorphine.

PJ Thum speaks to Emmy Charissa, a disability rights activist; Kokila Annamalai, an anti-death penalty activist; and Mila Rockey, sister of death row prisoner Syed Suhail and also an anti-death penalty activist, about Mr Nagaenthran’s case, the lack of a fair trial that accommodated his disabilities, and drug trafficking and the death penalty in Singapore. To learn more about Mr Nagaenthran’s case, read this op-ed by Kirsten Han.
