He was convicted in 2010 and has run out of all legal action. He was first scheduled to be hanged on November 10 last year but filed a final challenge. After her mother’s application was rejected, the court ordered the death sentence against her.

Dharmalingam was convicted and sentenced to death in November 2010 for importing 42.72 grams of heroin in 2009, when he was arrested at the Woodlands Checkpoint (embankment connection with Peninsular Malaysia) while entering Singapore, with a package of drugs tied to his thigh.

The mother, who came to a Singapore court from northern Malaysia, failed in a last -minute appeal to save her son.

“This last minute application, was brought just two days before the scheduled execution, and is the seventh application (excluding appeal) brought by Nagaenthran after his appeal against conviction was rejected by the Court of Appeal in 2011 more than 10 years ago,” the Singapore Attorney General’s Chambers said today. this.

“It is the latest attempt to abuse the court process and unreasonably delay the execution of the lawful sentence imposed on Nagaenthran,” he said.
