Singapore executes a second person for marijuana trafficking in three weeks

KULAU LULU: In spite of growing calls for the city-state to end drug-related executions, Singapore hanged another citizen on Wednesday for trafficking cannabis, the second in three weeks.

According to Transformative Justice Collective activist Kokila Annamalai, the 37-year-old man was executed after his last-ditch attempt to reopen his case was dismissed by the court on Tuesday without a hearing. Annamalai advocates for the death penalty.

The man, who wasn't named, had been detained for a very long time and sentenced in 2019 for dealing 1.5kg of marijuana.
