SINGAPORE: KHO JABING PUT TO DEATH
May 20, 2016: Convicted murderer, Kho Jabing had his deathÂ sentence executed around 3.30pm at Changi Prison Complex.
"Jabing is undergoing the death sentence now... let us pray that his soul isÂ calm and God brings Jabing to heaven," his sister Jumai Kho posted on herÂ Facebook this afternoon.
The Sarawakian had failed to secure a stay of execution on his deathÂ sentence after the Singapore Court of Appeal turned down his last minuteÂ application earlier in the morning.
Jumai told Bernama recently that her brother was expected to be laid to restÂ at the Mile 1 Muslim Cemetery, Jalan Kuala Baram, Miri in the Malaysian state ofÂ Sarawak.
The 32-year-old male Malaysian national Jabing had converted from Christianity to Islam in prison and chose MuhammadÂ as his Muslim name.
Jabing's execution was supposed to be carried out by dawn on May 20 but hisÂ counsel managed to grant an interim stay of execution late last night.
The Malaysian High Commission is now preparing and working with the SarawakÂ state government to bring back Jabing's remains scheduled for Saturday.
On her latest posting, Jumai wrote: "Bringing my elderÂ brother's remains to the hospital." (Sources: Bernama, 20/05/2016)
