To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, following the execution of Nagaenthran Dharmalingam for smuggling drugs into Singapore 12 years ago, they will make representations to the government of Singapore against the execution of so-called “drug mules”.

It is the longstanding policy of the UK Government to oppose the death penalty. The UK Government has raised concerns with the Government of Singapore about the resumption of executions, including the case of Nagaenthran Dharmalingam. We continue to urge all countries that retain the death penalty, including Singapore, to impose a moratorium on executions as the first step towards the abolition of the death penalty.
