Calls are growing for Singapore to not go ahead with plans to execute two men convicted of drug trafficking offences, on Wednesday. Al Jazeera reports that if the executions are carried out they will be the first since November 2019. Amnesty noted that the global trend towards abolition is growing and that neighbouring Malaysia had imposed a moratorium since July 2018 as it considers alternatives to capital punishment for the more than 1,000 people on death row in Malaysia, many sentenced to death for drug offences.
