HL Deb 20 July 1982 vol 433 cc843-4WA
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.
