§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have made representations to the Government of Malaysia concerning the hanging of persons convicted under a procedure objected to by the Malaysian Bar, and, if so, with what results.
§ Lord Belstead
As was stated in another place on 25th June, the ten member states of the European Community recently made a collective appeal for clemency on behalf of Tan Chay Wa, a Singaproean sentenced to death under the Malaysian Internal Security Act. So far as we are aware, he has neither been reprieved nor executed.
