1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Asking the authorities of Singapore to immediately halt plans to carry out the execution of Hishamrudin Bin Mohd and any other prisoner;
  • Expressing your distress at the continued use in Singapore of the death penalty for drug-related offences and resort to the mandatory death penalty, which violate both international law and standards;
  • Urging them to establish an official moratorium on executions and commute all death sentences, as first steps towards abolition of the death penalty.
