M Update, 22/3/2019 – Malaysian Michael anak Garing was executed in Singapore on Friday (March 22) morning. The execution took place at the Changi Prison.
Michael, 29, who is from Kapit, Sarawak, was convicted of murder by the Singapore High Court in 2015, and its Court of Appeal affirmed the conviction in 2017. Michael and another Sarawakian, Tony Imba, were part of a gang that went on a robbery spree, severely injuring three victims and killing a fourth man in 2010.
The pair had attacked and robbed the four men in the Kallang area from late in the night of May 29, 2010, until the early hours of the next day. The dead man had a fractured skull, a severed left hand, a slash wound across his neck and a back wound so deep that his shoulder blade was cracked.
Tony was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the robbery. The Malaysian government had said that they would submit a letter to Singapore to urge it to commute Michael’s death sentence.
Michael’s parents had also sent a clemency petition to the Singapore government.
