赶八月底死囚特赦大限,杨伟光后援会广招联署

因运毒而被在新加坡被判死刑的杨伟光请求新加坡特赦大限截止日期将近,拯救杨伟光行动日益受到关注,雪隆海南会馆今天宣布加入“杨伟光后援会”行动,并呼吁其他团体赶在赶8月26日死囚特赦大限前,一起响应签名运动。

雪隆海南会馆会长吴世才表示杨伟光应该获得生命的第二次机会,让他以自己本身的经历作为其他人的借鉴,警惕其他的年轻人不要误入歧途。

吴世才在其讲词中表示:“我们希望更多人加入后援会的阵容,因为我们必须与时间赛跑,在全马各地展开系列签名运动。”

雪隆海南会馆的理事即日起将会发动妇女组和青年团,把表格交给周围的朋友签名,并呼吁其他团体也一起加入这项签名运动。

雪隆海南会馆今天召开记者会,宣布加入“杨伟光后援会”,出席记者会的还有雪隆海南会馆的副会长陈孟龄以及秘书长詹瑞兰、隆雪华堂民权委员会主席廖国华和副主席兼杨伟光代表律师饶兆颖,以及马来西亚佛教青年总会署理总秘书罗玉萍。

获网上1万2000个签名

廖国华汇报签名运动的进展时表示,目前网上的签名共有约1万2000个签名,同时共获得超过10名国会议员的支持信,这显示社会开始关注这件事情。

杨伟光代表律师饶兆颖表示,已经两次去新加坡,可是新加坡当局拒绝让她见杨伟光。她表示杨伟光在这两年已经开始不断地在写《心经》,希望和他有同样背景的年轻人不要走上这条路。

饶兆颖(左图)说:“在杨伟光之前也有很多的杨伟光被吊死,他们同样来自同样的家庭背景(没有受过教育)因为一时的贪恋而走上这条路,所以杨伟光死的话,真的能够肯定没有下一个杨伟光再回来吗?

她续说:“如果他可以扮演唤醒其他年轻人的角色,这样不是比吊死他更好吗?”

饶兆颖指杨伟光承担了法律的责任,还有最后寻求总统特赦的权利,然而却因为新加坡法律部长的言论,杨伟光的权利被否决了,这是未审先判,有违公平原则。

其律师原本决定在今年8月20日再提呈新的宽赦陈情书给总统,但因为新加坡法律部长山姆甘公开表示不同意杨伟光被宽赦言论,而剥夺了杨伟光的法律权利。

此外,她也对马来西亚政府写信给新加坡政府感到很欣慰也很欢迎。她说“我们希望也政府除了在人道的立场上关注之外,同时也正视和保护一个马来西亚公民在外国的遭遇。”

她认为杨伟光可以唤醒社会对死刑的看法,以及正视在21世纪的马来西亚我们还存在着没有受教育的群众。

Tawau joins campaign to save death row Sabahan

Tawau: The district has become the second after Sandakan to garner signatures in support of a petition to have the death sentence on Sabahan, Yong Vui Kong, for drug trafficking in Singapore to be reduced to life imprisonment.

Tawau MP Datuk Chua Soon Bui, in a statement Thursday, said there were many requests for a similar campaign here.

The campaign to garner signatures in support of Yong began at his hometown (Sandakan), themed “Save Vui Kong,” and has collected 100,000 signatories nationwide to seek clemency from the President of the republic.

Yong was arrested on June 13, 2007 in Singapore when he was then only 18 years old for trafficking 47.27gm of diamorphine.

“We are gathering signatures to have his sentence commuted to life imprisonment based on humanitarian grounds,” Chua told a press conference here.

She explained that Yong’s case came to being after Yong’s counsel M. Ravi made an appeal to Malaysia over the case.

She said a number of people in the district had started the task to gather signatures, adding she herself would conduct her own rounds for the same purpose.

Meanwhile, those interested to support the campaign can endorse a petition to Singapore President Sellapan Ramanathan at http://www.petitiononline.com/Save VK/petition.html.

Printable petitions and signature forms can be obtained at http://www.box.net/shared/kl6tgf5ss (English), http://www.box.net/shared/ibce9v8kcd (Mandarin) and http://www.box.net/shared/daqymy6vtu (Malay).
