I have written on this previously, and my views remain the same, so I am just going to reproduce excerpts here of what I wrote before. I want to share my thoughts on why I think the death penalty is wrong, but allow me to first digress for a moment. Irene is in her 70’s. […]

Just read the report in Malaysiakini about your call for a moratorium on all repressive laws.

In May, 1994, my brother Adam, and I, were in the lobby at Parliament to listen to proceedings relating to a bill to amend the Constitution which, in my view, if passed, would remove an important institutionalised check against draconian law-making. When the constitution was first promulgated, law making required the consensus of 3 institutions […]
