While the elections hustings are in full swing, please spare a moment to think of Cheong Chun Yin and his family. Chun Yin is currently waiting on death row for a response to his clemency petition. If clemency is not granted, one Friday morning he will be escorted from his cell and executed.
He will die not understanding why our judges chose not to believe him, why no attempt was made to investigate his case more thoroughly and to trace his contact, “Lau De”.
And all Singaporeans will have to live with that fact that we may have killed an innocent man.
