Remember Yong

A 21-year-old Malaysian, Yong Vui Kong, has been sentenced to death by Singapore’s High Court for trafficking 47 grammes of heroin. Yong, who was 19 years old at the time of offence, is now facing impending execution.

The Singapore Anti Death Penalty Campaign (SADPC) has launched a petition to seek clemency for Yong from the President of Singapore and the entire Singapore cabinet.

Those who are interested to sign the online petition, and also to get a little background to Yong’s case, may visit the website concerned here.
