A MALAYSIAN ESCAPE DEATH PENALTY IN SINGAPORE

SINGAPORE: A 29-year-old Malaysian condemned to hang in 2009 for drug trafficking had his sentence commuted to life imprisonment as he was intellectually challenged and suffering from depression at the time.
Wilkinson Primus, who looked relaxed in court, was spared the gallows under amended laws that give judges the discretion to impose life terms on drug traffickers who suffer from an "abnormality of mind" that substantially reduce their mental responsibility for their acts.
He was riding a motorcycle into Singapore on Nov 3, 2008 when he was arrested at the Woodlands Checkpoint. A bundle in the basket of the motorcycle was later analysed to contain 35.66g of heroin.
Wilkinson was given the then-mandatory death penalty in 2009 after he was convicted of drug trafficking.
