What if Malaysia… Abolishes the Death Penalty? #6

What if Malaysia… Abolishes the Death Penalty? #6

What If Malaysia is an 8 episode miniseries where we explore what Malaysia could look like with certain progressive ideas, concepts and policies. 

“Every day, people are executed and sentenced to death by the state as punishment for a variety of crimes – sometimes for acts that should not be criminalized. In some countries, it can be for drug-related offences. Some countries execute people who are under 18 years old when the crime was committed, others use the death penalty against people with mental and intellectual disabilities and several others apply the death penalty after unfair trials – in clear violation of international law and standards.” - Amnesty International

Malaysia is one of the countries that is yet to abolish the death penalty. On this episode of What if Malaysia, Sangeet Deo, joins us to explore what Malaysia could look like if the death penalty was abolished.
