Important Update:The Execution of Yong Vui Kong

Dear Friends

Update: We just received the news from the Think Centre,Singapore that the execution of of M’sian teenage offender Yong Vui Kong that were scheduled for the 11 of December is now postponed.

The Court of Appeal today grants Yong Vui Kong an extension of time to have his appeal heard. After hearing arguments from both sides, the three judges agreed with his lawyer, Mr M Ravi, that Yong had a right to have his appeal considered by the courts. When this will take place is yet to be decided. It is believed that it will take place in about 2 months.

In the meantime, Yong, who was originally scheduled to be hanged last Friday, will not face execution until after the Court of Appeal has heard

his appeal.

Amnesty International would like to thank everyone who sent appeals for Yong’s Clemency and who worked on this case.We will update everyone on the progress of Vong’s Appeal and further action accordingly.

Please share this news among your friends and network
