Abstract:

All five contemporary practitioners of the death penalty in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam, have performed executions on a regular basis over the past few decades. NGO Amnesty International currently classifies each of these nations as death penalty 'retentionists'. However, notwithstanding a common willingness to execute, the number of death sentences passed by courts that are reduced to a term of imprisonment or where the prisoner is released from custody altogether, through grants of clemency by the executive branch of government, varies remarkably among these neighbouring political allies. In this text, the patterns which explain why some countries in the region award clemency far more often than do others in death penalty cases are explored and explained.
