KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is discussing whether it should abolish death penalty for drug trafficking or not. The abolishment of the death sentence for drug trafficking offences will be among the issues raised at the Dewan Rakyat sitting today.

 Ramkarpal Singh asked if the government proposed to amend the sentence for drug trafficking to a minimal jail time so that the penalty is based on the facts of each case if the government decides to abolish the death sentence for this crime.

 Tan Sri Noh Omar (BN-Tanjong Karang) during the Minister-Question-Time also asked the Prime Minister if the government plans to set up a committee to re-structure the administration and procedures used by Syariah Court so as to improve the service and integrity of the institution.
