SINGAPORE: The organisers of the Save Vui Kong Campaign (SVKC) today urged the Malaysia government to intervene to save Yong Vui Kong, a convicted drug trafficker after failing in its bid to get Singapore's Court of Appeal to reopen his case and set aside his death sentence.
In a statement, SVKC coordinator Ngeow Chow Ying:" We urge the government to intervene in whatever manner to save this young Malaysian from suffering death, including bringing the matter to the International Court of Justice."
Ngeow said SVKC regretted that the court had dismissed Yong's application to review his conviction on the grounds of unequal treatment.
Yong, a Malaysia citizen who has been convicted of trafficking in 47.27 grammes of diamorphine under Section 5(1) (a) of the Misuse of Drugs Act (Cap 185, 2001 Rev Ed) and sentenced to death in Singapore, recently filed an appeal claiming that the Attorney-General in exercising his discretionary power to prosecute, had, prima facie, acted discriminatorily against him. -- Bernama
