Vui Kong’s verdict scheduled on 4 April

The Singapore Court of Appeal will convene at 3.30pm next Monday, 4th April to pass judgment on Vui Kong’s appeal of the High Court’s judgment on judicial review.

As President SR Nathan has admitted that the powers to decide clemency for death row convicts rest on the Cabinet and not him, Vui Kong may have exhausted the last of his lifeline and his life may hinge on the decision of the CoA’s verdict this coming Monday.

We have also heard that since Vui Kong’s appeal started, there has been an unofficial temporary stay of execution for all prisoners on death row, pending the decision of the court on Yong’s case. If the verdict goes south, then we may well see a Changi gallows bloodbath in a scale not seen since the Pulau Senang uprising in 1965 when 18 men convicted of murdering a prison warden were hanged in a single Friday morning,

To give Vui Kong, his family and his counsel moral support through this difficult period, please visit the official Save Vui Kong Facebook page.
