The Malaysian government announced on Wednesday that it intends to abolish the death penalty. The country’s cabinet approved a bill that will be presented to the Parliament during its next session on October 15.

“All death penalty will be abolished. Full stop. All the papers are in the final stage. The Attorney-General has also indicated to us that it is ready to be tabled, hopefully in this (parliamentary) session,” Law Minister Liew Vui Keong said, according to Channel NewsAsia.

“Since we are abolishing the sentence, all executions should not be carried out,” Liew added..

“When commuted, they would have to face life imprisonment because there had been several deaths that were caused by the offender and so they were sentenced to death by the court,” Liew said, according to the Malay Mail.
