    Inmates to serve full 30 years if death sentence commuted

    The Star Online

    KUALA LUMPUR: Death row inmates, whose death sentence is commuted to 30 years' life imprisonment with the proposed abolishment of the death sentence, will have to serve the full jail term, says Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong.

    "There will be no retrospective effect for those serving their sentences, if it has been commuted to 30 years' life imprisonment.

    "Their jail term will run from the date the pardons board commutes their death sentences to life imprisonment," he said when answering a supplementary question by Kasthuriraani Patto (PH-Batu Kawan) during Minister's Question Time in Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday (Oct 16).

    Besides the 30-year life imprisonment sentence, he said that there would be instances where inmates will end up spending the rest of their natural life behind bars.

    To a question by Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN-Ayer Hitam) who opined that the decision was hasty, Liew said a study titled "Death Penalty in Malaysia and the Way Forward" was carried out by the Attorney General's Chambers.

    He said the study took several factors into consideration and recommended that the death penalty in Malaysia be abolished altogether.

    He added the study noted there was no prove to show that the death penalty served as an effective deterrent.

    He said the study also found that there was a risk of an innocent suspect being sent to the gallows due to a wrongful conviction.

    "There are instances where those accused of murder were convicted based on false testimony from the key witnesses.

    "Although the conviction may be set aside due to false testimony, the fact is that the conviction could have led to the death penalty," he said.

    Liew reiterated the government's commitment to abolish the death penalty, which was in line with Point 27 of Pakatan Harapan's manifesto to do away with cruel and oppressive laws.

    At present, Liew said there were 32 laws that carried the death penalty, of which 12 were mandatory sentences.

    There are 1,267 prisoners on death row and about 900 of them were convicted of drug offences, namely trafficking in dangerous drugs or an offence under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act.

    British woman facing death penalty after husband found stabbed to death in Malaysia

    Samantha Jones, 62, is said to have murdered John William Jones, 62, after an argument on Wednesday on the tropical island of Langkawi. Police say the couple had lived there for 11 years and the suspect will be sentenced to death by hanging if she is found guilty.

    ‘The couple were believed to have engaged in an argument. ‘The wife then took a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her husband in the chest,’ police chief Mohamad Iqbal Ibrahim said. A 12-inch knife was found on the floor of the couple’s bedroom covered in blood, it is alleged.

    The wife was arrested soon after the gruesome discovery. Murder carries a mandatory death sentence in Malaysia. The government recently pledged to abolish the death penalty for all crimes but lawmakers still have to approve the changes.

    UK woman could face death penalty after husband murdered in Malaysia

    A British woman has been charged with murdering her husband after he was found stabbed to death at their home on the Malaysian resort island of Langkawi.

    Police found a blood-stained kitchen knife in the home 51-year-old Samantha Jones shared with John William Jones, 62.

    Mr Jones was found dead on October 18 with a stab wound to his chest.

    Jones' lawyer Sangeet Kaur Deo said: "She is very, very overwhelmed. It is her husband at the end of the day. She is also grieving for him despite the circumstances of the case, but she is holding up."

    Police earlier said Jones confessed to stabbing her husband in the chest during a heated argument.

    The couple moved to the tropical island 11 years ago under the Malaysia My Second Home scheme, which gives foreigners long-stay visas.

    Ms Kaur said Jones did not enter a plea as the magistrates' court has no jurisdiction to hear a murder case. The case is expected to be transferred to the high court.

    The next court hearing is on November 29 where prosecutors are expected to provide the defence with the post-mortem, forensic and other related reports, Ms Kaur added.

    Murder carries a mandatory death sentence by hanging in Malaysia, but the government plans to abolish the death penalty for all crimes.

    All executions are being put on hold pending changes to the law.

    Death penalty might not be completely abolished

    The death penalty for drug-related offences might be abolished while judges could be given the discretion to impose the death penalty for certain crimes.

    This is one of the options being considered by the government, De Facto Law Minister Liew Vui Keong told The Malaysian Insight.

    The options are firstly the total abolition of the death penalty.

    Secondly to abolish the death penalty for drug-related offences, while allowing judges more discretion to impose the death penalty for certain crimes, such as murder.

    Thirdly, there is no abolition, but only more discretion given to judges over the imposition of the death penalty.

    He said the government will keep its word that the death penalty would no longer be mandatory for crimes stipulated under eight laws.

    “These scenarios are all still under consideration at the moment,” said Liew, adding that the ministry has engaged various stakeholders on the issue.

    Liew had said last month that the cabinet will make a decision on the tabling in Parliament of the proposal to abolish the death penalty before the Dewan Rakyat convenes.

    In the case of drug-related convictions, the minister in the prime minister’s department said that judges may be required to find four conditions to reduce a sentence from death to life imprisonment.

    The conditions are there was no evidence of buying and selling of a dangerous drug at the time when the person convicted was arrested, no involvement of agent provocateurs; the person convicted is restricted to transporting, carrying, sending or delivering a dangerous drug; the person convicted has assisted an enforcement agency to disrupt drug-trafficking activities within or outside Malaysia.

    The public prosecutor must issue a certificate declaring that the convict had cooperated with authorities.

    Liew highlighted that the fallibility of court decisions was a factor in his seeking the death penalty abolition.

    Saying that the feelings of victims’ family members were also a strong factor, he added that error of judgment could lead to innocent people being sent to the gallows.

    He cited instances in the American judicial system where convicts were set free after DNA evidence exonerated them of capital crimes, such as murder

    Liew said currently there are 1,281 death-row inmates including 923 drug traffickers.

    "Some of them are just mules. They are not really the syndicate members, and yet they are on death row," he said.

    He said a person on the death row has to write his appeals for at least 10 years before the execution order is signed by the Agong or the Tuanku of the respective state.

    "It would take years. He would suffer. He would have nightmares and he would have a difficult life inside because he has lost all his freedom.

    “Even when it comes to food, they are served with boneless chicken and boneless fish. Why are they served with boneless chicken? Because they might use a bone to make a weapon or perhaps kill themselves with it.”

    He said all these factors must be taken into consideration when a decision is made on the abolition of the death penalty.

    Last October, Liew stated that the death penalty was going to be abolished, but the government's decision provoked an emotional response.
