Drug Offences & the Death Penalty in Malaysia

There are approximately 1280 people currently on death row in Malaysia.

A majority of these people have been convicted of drug-related offences. Many face socio-economic disadvantage, nationality and language barriers.

Harm Reduction International, Monash University and the Anti-Death Penalty Asian Network (ADPAN) have come together to investigate how the Malaysian criminal justice system affords people charged with drug-related capital offences access to justice and fair trial rights, from the stage of arrest through to death row.
