Holding on to Hope for Nagaenthran

Malaysian, Nagaenthran Dharmalingam (who hails from Perak), is scheduled to be hanged in Singapore on Wednesday (April 27) after the Singapore Court of Appeal upheld his execution. The 34-year-old was handed the death penalty by the Singapore High Court in 2010 for smuggling 42.72g of diamorphine. It’s important to note that Nagaenthran wasn’t a kingpin or a drug lord, but a drug mule with a below average IQ of 69.

But is it too late for Nagaen? Joining me on the show today to discuss is Kirsten Han, journalist and activist from Singapore. She’s part of the Transformative Justice Collective, a group committed to seeking the reform of Singapore’s criminal justice system, starting with the abolition of the death penalty.
