偉光重生!

Today Vui Kong’s sentence has been commuted to life imprisonment back dating from 14 June 2007 and 15 strokes of the cane.

Good news that Vui Kong is now off death row but we are troubled by the caning . Although I feel relieved, but I feel strange to celebrate. 15 stroke of canning is a bit heavy in punishment. Canning is another barbaric act. We should opt for restorative justice and rehabilitation instead of hash punishment. Society will not progress without love and forgiveness.

As Singapore government has changed their law and do away their mandatory death penalty for drug mules, when will the Malaysian government follow so and do away the mandatory death penalty as well, if not abolishing death penalty all together?

Thanks everyone who have working hard with us in the campaign!

原本因运毒被判死刑的杨伟光,今在新加坡高庭改判為终身监禁及鞭刑15下。

感谢各位与我们一起努力的同伴。感恩看到偉光重生!

“給生命第二次機會”運動大馬協調員陳慧君,喜見楊偉光週四終獲得了等待已久的重生機會,她認為,這是新馬民眾對此事的關注和支持,以及對事件的醒覺和努力收穫的成果。

陳慧君說,楊偉光早前爭取脫離死刑行列的時候,便希望當局改以終身監禁來取代,如今這個願望終於實現,她希望偉光能好好利用得來不易的“新生命”,往後能表現出一個更好的楊偉光。

她覺得慶幸,在爭取讓楊偉光有第二次生命機會的過程中,新馬人民和新加坡政府都有這方面的醒覺。“讓楊偉光以死代替罪刑是過重的刑罰,畢竟當年他還年少無知,而且只是一名毒販的跑腿。”

據她瞭解,根據新加坡的法律,扣除假期以及藐視囚犯的表現,她預計偉光至少尚需面對十幾年的牢獄生活,儘管還有漫漫長路,但偉光相信仍能在40歲左右出獄。

“40歲還是壯年,尚有機會貢獻社會。”

她感謝這些年來新馬民眾對這項課題的關注和支持,否則新加坡政府可能不會在這麼短的時間內對死刑的判決進行司法改革,而這一點,她也冀望大馬政府能效法,以便檢討我國毒品法令所實施的強制性死刑。
