Death Penalty Watch – Man faces sentence for murder if convicted

18 Jul

According to TODAY online, a man faces the death penalty_in singapore if convicted of murdering a retiree.

What is highly disturbing about this case is the fact that the accused has been unrepresented in court. Given that the judge will hand out a death sentence if the man is found guilty, the Law Society of Singapore should be notified of the man’s circumstances and provide immediate counsel. The lawyer who will be representing him, should also request the case to be further postphoned so that he or she has the time and resources to prepare for the client’s defense.
