星洲日报,2010-07-28 18:36

(布城)外交部长拿督斯里阿尼法今日(週三,7月28日)表示,他已在7月20日亲自把要求宽赦被判死刑大马青年杨伟光的信件交给新加坡外交部长杨荣文。

阿尼法出席外交部2009年卓越服务奖颁发仪式后,在新闻发佈会上说,基於两国的宪法都允许提出宽赦,所以大马才向新加坡提出宽赦杨伟光的要求。

他表示,已向杨荣文解释,大马並没有意思要干预新加坡的司法和行政权,两国一向都互相尊重。

阿尼法说,他也说明为何大马提早呈交宽赦信给新加坡的理由,即他担心若届时不在国內,將无法即时提呈宽赦信给新加坡。新加坡法庭已订在8月28日针对杨伟光的死刑判决进行司法检討。

Wisma Putra pleads for Sabahan on Singapore death row

Wednesday July 28, 2010, The Start On-Line

THE Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the Singapore government last week to plead for clemency for young Sabahan Yong Vui Kong, who was sentenced to death in the city state for drug trafficking.

Deputy Foreign Minister A. Kohilan Pillay told senator Datuk Saripah Aminah Syed Mohamed that the letter from Wisma Putra was addressed to the President of Singapore for his consideration.

“Yong’s family had also written to the President of Singapore,” he said.

Yong, 22, was convicted on Jan 7 last year for trafficking in 47gm of diamorphine, a capital offence under the Singaporea Misuse of Drugs Act.

Yong was arrested on June 13, 2007. He was 18 when he committed the offence.

The last day for Yong to file his petition for clemency is Aug 26, after which he may be hanged at any time.

In his reply, Kohilan also said two Malaysians, convicted of drug trafficking in China and Japan respectively, had their sentences reduced.

In the case of Umi Azlim Mohammad Lazim, who was also sentenced to death by a High Court in Guangzhou, China, her death sentence was reduced to life imprisonment.

The former Universiti Malaysia Sabah student from Kelantan was found guilty of trafficking in 2.983kg of heroin in Shantao airport, and was sentenced to death on May 15, 2007 at the age of 23.

In the case of Raja Munirah Iskandar Shah, who was convicted of trafficking in 690.8g of syabu in Narita International Airport in 2006 at the age of 21, her sentence was reduced from seven years and four months to six years and nine months

副外长:杨伟光判死刑‧大马已致函新国求情

2010-07-27 18:48, 星洲日报

(吉隆坡)外交部副部长柯希仁表示,大马在上週已致函给新加坡政府,要求减轻在新加坡贩运海洛因罪成被判死刑的大马青年杨伟光的刑罚。

他在上议院回答拿督阿都拉曼的问题时表示,外交部是在杨伟光父母的要求下才向新国提出上诉,大马政府只是扮演协助传达被告家属意愿的角色。杨伟光的父母也已致函给新国政府求情。

“杨伟光是在2007年遭新国扣留,当时他要求不要將他被拘押的事告诉家人和大马政府,以致大马政府不知道有关他被判死刑。杨伟光原定在2009年12月4日问吊,但当局展延执行刑罚,直至得到新国总统的指示为止。”

新加坡有权决定

他表示,实际上减刑问题有赖於新国政府的决定,新国有权考虑或完全漠视大马政府的上诉。

不过,他表示,大马也有要求他国减刑成功的案例,如在日本和广州贩毒的大马女子经过大马政府求情后,获得减刑。

不法集团利诱运毒
没案底年轻人成目標

另一方面,柯希仁指出,非法集团专门利用年龄介於20至35岁没有案底的年轻人贩运毒品到国外。

他也说,残障人士、女性、公司递送员已成为非法集团利用的目標群,以贩运毒品到国外。

“不法集团也以利诱方式如提供免费机票和就业机会,利用年轻人贩运毒品到国外。”

1490大马人国外坐牢

他表示,从1990年至今,共有1490名大马人在国外坐牢,其中有70人被判死刑,当中65人已问吊,5人正等待上诉或执行死刑。

他表示,从1490宗案件中,有50%或765宗是贩毒案件、使用偽造信用卡有195宗、商业罪案87宗以及其他偷窃和贩卖人口案件。

他指出,共有610名大马男子和146名大马女子在拉丁美洲因贩运毒品遭当局扣留,当中有80%的女子年龄介於20岁至35岁。

“其他国家如秘鲁有10宗、阿根廷8宗、委內瑞拉8宗、巴西21岁以及智利1宗。”

他表示,目前有死刑的国家有新加坡、泰国、印尼等。

柯希仁表示,政府已採取多项醒觉运动提醒国人不要成为非法集团的跑腿,如通过大马广播电视台广播节目、在边界严守等。他也促请身为父母者好好管教孩子。
