Singapore sentences man to death via zoom | VOA News

The Singapore Supreme Court handed down the death sentence to a man over a Zoom video call due to the coronavirus lockdown measures. The accused is a 37-year-old Malaysian man who will be hanged to death for a heroine deal that went down in 2011. The man was sentenced via the video call while in jail, and other participants were on the call from various locations. The Human Rights Watch has condemned the use of the app to announce the death penalty because it is inhumane and cruel. A Supreme Court spokesman has commented that the meeting was held virtually in order to prevent possibly spreading the virus.
