Singapore's justice system is under the microscope as campaigners scramble to halt the planned execution of accused Malaysian drug smuggler Nagaenthran Dharmalingam. Advocates say Dharmalingam has intellectual disabilities - with an IQ of 69 - and it would be unlawful to go ahead with his execution. Dharmalingam, who has been on death row since 2010, was due to be executed on Wednesday, but this has been put on hold after he tested positive to COVID-19. Renuka presents a feature on this.

Listen to SBS Tamil at 8pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays on SBS Radio 2.
