Are they just like the Sarawak BN? ....who will not take steps to save the life of this Sarawakian...
Remember, in the case of Kho Jabing, the Singapore High Court had re-sentenced him, saving him from the death penalty. The Singapore Court of Appeal then on a 3-2 decision reversed the High Court decision sentencing him again to death... If we look at it, 3 judges said he did not deserve the death penalty and 3 said he did.
Hence, I believe his life should be spared and his death sentence commuted to life >> not will the people and political parties contesting in the Sarawak Elections make a commitment to save the life of this Sarawakian. It will also mean a lot for the voters - will these political parties only be interested in the 'big projects' - and not just the woes of the individual person.
Remember that the Malaysian Bar, Sarawak Bar and the Sabah Bar has called that Kho Jabing's death sentence be commuted to life imprisonment...
23. Where the occasion demands it, the 3 Bars have stood together in voicing out society’s concerns such as the repressive laws recently by Parliament. In 2015, we also lent our voice to the cause of justice and humanity by joining in the campaign to commute the death sentence of a Sarawakian, Mr Kho Jabing to life imprisonment. Mr Kho Jabing, is on death row in Singapore after being convicted by the Courts there for murder. - OPENING OF THE LEGAL YEAR 2016,22 JANUARY 2016, ADDRESS BY THE PRESIDENT,OF THE ADVOCATES’ ASSOCIATION OF SARAWAK, Leonard D.
