Pannir Selvam Pranthaman

SINGAPORE: APEX COURT DISMISSES APPEAL BY MALAYSIAN DRUG MULE

December 6, 2021:

Malaysian drug mule Pannir Selvam Pranthaman, 34, who was granted a stay of execution two years ago in Singapore, failed in his appeal on 26 November 2021 to start a court challenge against his death sentence.
After his application for permission to start judicial review proceedings was dismissed by the Court of Appeal, Pannir spoke to his lawyers, Mr Too Xing Ji and Mr Lee Ji En, through the glass panel of the dock.
The trio then bowed their heads in a quiet prayer.
Mr Too, who was in tears, told reporters that his client has not given instructions to file any further application.
The apex court decision hinged on whether information provided by Pannir to the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) had substantively assisted the agency in disrupting drug trafficking activities.
Under the Misuse of Drugs Act, drug couriers who are issued a certificate of substantive assistance by the prosecution can be sentenced to life imprisonment and caning instead of the death penalty.
Pannir contended that he had provided information that led to the arrest of a drug trafficker named Zamri Mohd Tahir and argued that he should be issued a certificate of substantive assistance. On 26 November, Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon said the statute contemplates that the information must have been used by CNB in some way. He said "used" in this context may mean arrest, apprehension or conviction, or the making of wider strategic decisions such as when to launch enforcement.
The court, which also comprised Justices Judith Prakash and Steven Chong, will issue fuller written grounds at a later date.
Pannir was convicted in 2017 of importing 51.84g of heroin into Singapore and sentenced to the mandatory death penalty. After his appeal was dismissed in February 2018, he and his family submitted clemency petitions to President Halimah Yacob, which were rejected.
Senior State Counsel Francis Ng said in written submissions that the CNB confirmed that information provided by Pannir, who failed to identify Zamri when shown a series of photographs by the CNB, did not assist in Zamri's arrest.
On 23 May 2019, a day before Pannir was scheduled to hang, the apex court granted him temporary reprieve to seek legal advice on whether he could mount a court challenge.
