URGENT ACTION for Malaysian national Kho Jabing scheduled to executed in Singapore on 6 November

The execution of Malaysian national Kho Jabing has been set for 6 November in Singapore. 

The President rejected his clemency application on 19 October but can still reconsider his decision and halt the imminent execution.

1) Please write immediately in English or your own language:
  • Urging the President to immediately halt Kho Jabing’s execution and reconsider the decision on Kho Jabing’s clemency application;
  • Noting that, while you are not seeking to downplay the seriousness of the crime or its consequences, Kho Jabing did not intend to cause death and the death sentence was re-imposed by the Court of Appeal in a close three-to-two decision with dissenting judgments, after it had previously been set aside;
  • Calling on the authorities to immediately reimpose an official moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty, and commute all existing death sentences.
2) For the full Urgent Action, including appeal addresses and further information, please click on the Word or PDF version below.
