Amidst growing international concern, Singapore is set to carry out its first execution of a woman in nearly two decades. Saridewi Djamani, a 45-year-old Singaporean national, faces the death penalty for trafficking 30g of heroin. Her execution follows the recent hanging of Mohd Aziz bin Hussain, another drug convict. The country’s tough anti-drug laws have led to 15 executions since March 2022, drawing criticism from human rights groups, British billionaire Richard Branson, and the United Nations. Advocates urge Singapore to reconsider its stance on capital punishment for drug offenses, highlighting concerns about deterrence and human rights violations.
