Singapore is preparing to hang two drug convicts this week, with one being the first woman to be executed in nearly 20 years, according to rights groups urging a halt to the executions. A 56-year-old man convicted of trafficking 50 grams of heroin is scheduled to be hanged on Wednesday, and a 45-year-old woman convict is set to be executed on Friday for trafficking around 30 grams of heroin.

If carried out, she will be the first woman to be executed in Singapore since 2004. Singapore has tough anti-drug laws, and at least 13 people have been hanged since the government resumed executions following a two-year hiatus during the Covid-19 pandemic. Rights watchdog Amnesty International called on Singapore to stop the impending executions, stating that there is no evidence that the death penalty deters crime.
