Malaysian Man sentenced to death via Zoom call in Singapore

A Malaysian man who was accused of “masterminding” a 2011 heroin deal was reportedly sentenced to death by hanging via a Zoom call.

Punithan Genasan, 37, was the first person in Singapore to be given the death sentence over the video teleconference hearings during the coronavirus pandemic, according to the country’s Straits Times.

A spokesperson for Singapore’s supreme court said that the hearing was held on Zoom due to restrictions over the spread of coronavirus.

“For the safety of all involved in the proceedings, the hearing for Public Prosecutor v Punithan A/L Genasan was conducted by video-conferencing,” the spokesperson said.

Genasan was found to be complicit in trafficking heroin when he introduced two couriers to each other and telling one to drive into Singapore to meet the other.

Singapore has very stict drug laws, sentencing people to death for possession of even small amounts.
