Death Penalty, Mandatory Death Penalty, Executions and Death Row Statistics dated 3/11/2015 (Parliamentary Q & A)
Parliamentary Question and Answer on the Death Penalty, Mandatory Death Penalty, Executions and Death Row Statistics dated 3/11/2015
Thanks to Member of Parliament Kulasegaran (DAP Ipoh) for sharing the question and the answers to his questions, we can share it.[Parliamentary Written Questions/Oral questions not answered due to time constraints, do get answers from the Government - but these are not available on the Parliamentary websites. Only if the said MP shares it with us, will we know the question and answers. Sadly, too many MPs, both from BN and the Opposition do not share.)
Malaysia is not just reviewing the mandatory death penalty, but the death penalty - and the decision will be made.
On death row, as of 6/10/2015 is 1,022.
Malaysia executed 33 persons since 1998 until 6/10/2015. During the relevant period, 127 death row prisoners have had their sentence commuted.
