Dear Alan, Ravi, Rachel and all friends in Singapore who oppose the death penalty and support freedom of expression,

All of us at Amnesty International Hong Kong salute your courage and commitment to defending human rights in Singapore.  The death penalty is irreversible, and is the ultimate cruel, inhumane and degrading form of punishment. The continuing imposition of the death penalty in Singapore is contrary to global trends towards abolition. Attempts to silence those who question the use of the death penalty will never succeed so long as there are brave individuals like you, who speak up for justice and human rights in Singapore.

Stay strong. You are in our thoughts.

Mabel Au Mei-po

Director, Amnesty International Hong Kong

Ravi, Rachel 及所有在新加坡反對死刑與支持表達自由的朋友,

對於你們在新加坡為捍衛人權所付出的勇氣及承擔,我們國際特赦組織(香港)全體人員表示致敬。死刑是一種不可挽回﹑極度殘忍﹑不人道及貶低人的價值的刑罰。新加坡執行死刑正正與全球廢除死刑的大潮流背道而馳。只要社會上還有勇敢的人好像你們一樣仍然在新加坡為公義及人權發聲,那些企圖使挑戰使用死刑的人禁聲是永遠不會成功的。

保重,支持你

區美寶

國際特赦組織(香港)
