#SaveNagaenthran Strikes A Chord In Singapore

The case of Nagaenthran Dharmalingam, a Malaysian man with intellectual impairments sentenced to death for drug trafficking, has generated debate over the effectiveness of the death penalty in Singapore's war on drugs. Freelance journalist Kirsten Han, long-time advocate for the abolishment of the death penalty joins us on the show to discuss how the case unfolded, what happens next for Nagaenthran and public discourse on the death penalty.
