The National Solidarity Party (NSP) and Think Centre (TC) have come together to organise a public consultation to discuss the proposed changes to the mandatory death penalty announced on 9 July. The following are the details provided on their event page on Facebook:
Apart from catalyzing public discourse on the proposed changes, the organisers aim to gather and present feedback from this public consultation to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Law for their consideration.
These are some questions which we will be discussing at the forum:
2) How effective is the mandatory death penalty as a deterrent?
3) Are the proposed reforms too stringent, causing only a small minority of cases to benefit?
The speaker line-up for this event includes:
1. Professor Walter Woon
David Marshall Professor of Law, Centre for International Law, NUS
Former Attorney-General (2008-2010)
