A DELUGE of constitutional issues has washed up our shores during the last one month.

The impending execution (now postponed) of Malaysian citizen Nagaenthran Dharmalingam for drug trafficking in Singapore has raised issues about the death penalty, which is authorised for 17 offences in our country.
