Kho Jabing – Apex court dismisses appeal, and execution is to proceed later today
At about 12.40pm on 20 May, Singapore’s Court of Appeal had thrown out an appeal filed by Jabing’s legal team late last night after an attempt to acquire a stay of execution through a civil suit yesterday evening as the Criminal Motion filed by the legal team earlier in the day was dismissed.
Shortly after the dismissal of the appeal, Jabing’s family was notified by the prison that the execution will proceed today. The time of execution is currently unknown.
All of us are in deep shock. This is the first time that an execution proceeds on the same day the appeal gets dismissed. We are now rushing to support the family in various ways.
