Malaysiakini did a good job with this video!

It’s not just a matter of compassion – a young man, poor, in wrong company, druggie, etc – it is also a matter of legal rights, of executive interference in the courts, and about our rights as citizens and Malaysia’s responsibility to protect its citizens.

22 year old Yong Vui Kong, could be anyone or everyone. Read his story here.

WHY is Malaysia not intervening in this case of young Yong Vui Kong on death row in SIngapore? Is it because there is no political mileage for them in it. Or is it because it is Singapore?

“Malaysians, I am sad to say do not get the right treatment, not like Filipinos, Indonesians….” Ravi, the lawyer said. Isn’t that staggering?

Malaysia has in the past intervened in cases outside the country, for example, the case of a young university science graduate from a poor Malaysian family of rice farmers, Umi Azlim Mohamad Lazim, 24.

Am I missing something here?

She was was charged with the death penalty for having 2.9 kilograms of drugs in her luggage when she was arrested at Shantou airport in 2008 (read here: http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=40878 ).

Umno and PAS actively campaigned to free Umi, and this has led the government to intervene, where she was brought home and her death sentence commute to life.

In another development, a young citizen who was detained for over a year in Laos for alleged human trafficking was freed after intervention of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, Wisma Putra and the Umno Youth Community Complaints Bureau.

So again, why isn’t anyone from Malaysia bothered about Yong?

    Because he is a Chinese !
    Anyway we cannot dictate what Singapore can do or what their law should be for Malaysian. Just remember a young American broke its law and was sentenced to be caned and to be in jail for a number of months and even when the President of America pleaded for his sentence to be waived or spared but to no avail.
    Why should Yong be any difference and besides he is a Chinese that Umno can well spare and just like you say there is no political mileage in it at all !

    Umno and Pas brought up this issue for Umi. PR has brought up this issue from the opposition. My question is…..Where are the chinese component party of BN , specifically the MCA and Gerakan. Not a whimper from them.

    Kenapa MCA tak kata dan buat apa apa. Part itu kan sepatutnya bersuara. Jangan marahkan UMNO, marahkan MCA dan Kerajaan Malaysia yang berdiam diri.

  14. rebena says:

    federal gomen should explain those custodials death..
    TBH, Kugan case etc.. can continue to be effect..

    U see, Japan, USA, Australia, UK, etc… a country leader can stepped down from the top administrative post , once they lost in GE.
    in Bolehland, those katak buruk, buaya, harimau not listen to voters and step down..
    no gentlemen … in bumno.

    why everything has to be thought from racial aspect? I am a malay and i am with pakatan. Unfortunately, i do not see any racial prejudice here when the govt do not interfere. This case and umi’s case are totally different. From what i understand, yong has been actively pushing drugs in spore. He was aware of what he was doing. He can argue that he was in the wrong group of people but he was aware of what he was doing and the risks. Umi was duped into carrying the drug, or so the case was reported. And in case of Singapore, it is a loss cause anyway. Even an american cant escape punishment. Spore is a country that follow the laws by book and no amount of bribery or influence can save the boy’s life. Did not that the kind of government that we all want Malaysia to be? Or are we not ready yet for a government that totally uphold the laws?

    /// 22 year old Yong Vui Kong, could be anyone or everyone. ///

    It is so easy to appeal to sympathy. What about those hundreds and thousands who are hooked on heroin – who died of OD or resort to crimes?

    Any of the road accident victims could be anyone or everyone.

    That guy ODed in Chow Kit could be anyone or everyone.

    The laws are very clear on drug trafficking – both in Malaysia and Singapore.

    If the laws in S’pore amd Malusia is that great, they would have been emulated in advanced countries.
