Be part of the Save Vui Kong Campaign Volunteer

Amnesty International Malaysia is going to have ‘Banduan Akhir‘, a special theatre performance, in conjuction with the ‘World Day Against the Death Penalty’.

The play which will be staged for five nights from the 10th -14th October 2010 is in English and Bahasa Malaysia but there will be subtitles provided. The performance will be held at Black Box Theatre, Level G2-01, Block A5, Solaris Dutamas 1, Jalan Dutamas 1, Off Jalan Duta, Kuala Lumpur.

This production looks at issues surrounding death penalty and is inspired by the story of Yong Vui Kong, a Malaysian boy facing the death penalty in Singapore. In 2007, the 19 year old boy from a broken family in Sabah was arrested with 47 grams of heroin and sentenced to death. The play follows the struggle of his sister, Vui Fung and M. Ravi, the human rights lawyer in Singapore, to have Yong Vui Kong’s death sentence revoked.

Amnesty Malaysia is persistently campaigning for the abolition of the death penalty and would be honoured and greatly appreciative if you could attend this production and offer your support to this demonstration of the fundamental right of every Malaysian and global citizen, the right to life. An issue such as this should be discussed freely and without restrictions, and this production will give opportunity for discussion and creation of awareness.
