Drug mules on death row: Why we need to abolish the death penalty


Join us on Telegram and Instagram for the latest.

In 2017, Malaysian musician Pannir Selvam Pranthaman was found guilty by the Singapore High Court, for trafficking 51.8g of diamorphine at the Woodlands checkpoint in 2014. He was then sentenced to death. The 33-year-old Pannir has been in prison ever since.

BFM speaks with Pannir’s sister Angelia Pranthaman and Latheefa Koya, a human rights activist and advisor at Lawyers For Liberty, to talk about Pannir’s journey so far and to discuss if there is a need for us to abolish the death penalty.
