The Singapore Anti-Death Penalty Campaign (SADPC) wishes to express our utmost disappontment at Shah Alam High Court’s decision to sentence Noor Atiqah M. Lasim to death for drug trafficking.

Noor Atiqah, a 27 year old single mother of a 6 year old girl from Singapore, was found in possession of 342.1 grammes of heroin and 30.3 grammes of monoacethyl morphine at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) on Jan 5, 2009. According to her statement as reported by the media, she claimed that the bag containing the drugs did not belong to her.

We will like to reiterate our stand against the use of the death penalty as a punishment against crimes. We implore the High Court of Shah Alam to look into this matter again, especially so when the result of the sentencing will be irreversible, leaving a young child without her mother.

Thank you.

Rachel Zeng,
Singapore Anti-Death Penalty Campaign (SADPC)

Its unbelievable that even in the 21st century, we condemn humanity and become barbaric in our methods of punishment. What happened to the basic human rights act, a democratic society we deplore, lets not stoop so low in order to show how powerless one can become rather than treating the serious crime committed with justifiable punishment other than murdering the culprit. There are lessons to be learnt from dictating countries that are at the moment going throung political unrest at this moment. What have they achieved by becoming barbaric in their methods of ruling their coutry. Be ahead of these barbarians, you have the intelligence or maybe you are almost lacking in it. I rest my case.
