Keep death penalty for heinous crimes

  • Thursday, 14 Feb 2019

I REFER to the report “Musa: Death penalty must stay” (The Star, Feb 13) and fully concur with former inspector-general of police Tan Sri Musa Hassan that the death penalty must be maintained for heinous crimes. News about the commission of heinous and dreadful offences such as murder, violent extremist incidents resulting in death, trafficking in dangerous drugs, and possession or control of any firearm, ammunition or explosives without lawful authority is appearing in our media daily.

Such crimes deserve the most severe punishment, reflecting society’s abhorrence and intolerance towards them.
