Bureaucracy can be a killer. For those on Death Row, it means an agonisingly... LONG WAIT TO DIE

KUALA LUMPUR: They are Malaysia's forgotten convicts - prisoners who have spent more than two decades on Death Row awaiting their tryst with death.

Among this group is a man who has been awaiting execution for 22 years, since the age of 26.

The authorities are tight-lipped on why these men have yet to be executed, but the New Straits Times understands that a combination of administrative hitches and delays in handing down written court judgements have kept these criminals in solitary confinement for years.

Usually, those sentenced to death spend up to 10 years exhausting the appeals and clemency process. But when a team from the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam) visited Death Row in Kajang Prison to investigate the death of Alex Wong, there were several prisoners who had been awaiting execution for nearly two decades.

Suhakam is concerned whether these death row prisoners convicted of murder, drug trafficking and firearm possession offences are receiving two distinct punishments: the death sentence and years of living in solitary confinement.

It also wants to know whether executing someone after prolonged periods on death row violates the Constitution and the principles of justice.

There has been a debate in the United States and England on the length of time convicts spend on Death Row. In 1993, a British court found that it was inhuman and degrading to hang anyone who has spent more than five years on death row. It argued that such prisoners should have their sentences commuted to life in prison.

In the US, some death row inmates have spent more than 20 years awaiting execution and several prisoners were executed when they were in their 80s.

The Suhakam study also covers those being held in remand for long periods and those held at the pleasure of the Rulers.

Suhakam Commissioners are expected to seek the help of the Bar Council in compiling their report...........

Nafsu itu sangat jahatnya, begitulah Tuhan memberitahu kita dan di dalam Al Quran ada diceritakan untuk ingatan kita semua. Nafsu sifatnya dungu, melulu kehendaknya tidak bertepi, apa sahaja dia mahu. Halal atau haram dia tidak peduli yang penting apa sahaja perlu dimiliki. Kemahuannya sangat dahsyat, hebat hingga menjadi sesat. Kehendaknya hingga badan penat, dia tidak penat.Badanlah yang terima risikonya akibat kehendak-kehendaknya.Tuntutan kemahuannya mudharat dan memudharatkan, rosak dan merosakkan. Masyarakat huru-hara dibuatnya, manusia pecah-belah kerananya, peperangan terjadi disebabkannya.

Kehendak nafsu tidak pernah puas-puas, dapat sedikit hendak banyak, setelah banyak yang dapat terasa sedikit. Hendak tambah lagi, hendak banyak lagi, cari lagi hingga badan letih dibuatnya.Tamak pun datang, bakhil pun menjelang.Jika tidak dapat dia melukakan hati, jika dapat dia membungakan hati. Hati pula rosak dibuatnya dapat menjadi bangga, tidak dapat kecewa pula.

Hati raja diri pun menjadi pengkhianat kepada Tuhannya, derhaka kepada Penciptanya. Nafsu punya angkara akal fikiran manusia pula dirosaknya, cerdik pandai pula dibodohnya, bahkan ditipunya. Manusia berfikir kehendak nafsunya yang melulu tanpa memikirkan akibat buruknya hingga cerdik pandai berfikir sudah tidak normal lagi. Dungu di dalam cerdik, gila di dalam siuman, bodoh di dalam pandai. Mereka yang telah dikudakan oleh nafsu itulah yang memikirkan kehidupan manusia.

Bila manusia hidup di dalam ketakutan, mereka juga yang hendak memikirkan manusia yang telah rosak itu. Maka lahirlah kerosakan di dalam kerosakan. Dunia bertambah parah, untuk membaikinya bertambah bingung dan susah. Maka jalan keluarnya tangkapan demi tangkapan, hukuman demi hukuman, penjara sesak dibuatnya.Yang masyarakat ikut nafsu, yang jahat ikut nafsu, yang kena tangkap ikut nafsu. Yang membuat undang-undang ikut nafsu, yang menghukum ikut nafsu, apa sudah jadi?

Yang jadi dunia sudah dikuasai oleh nafsu, dunia telah lesu, dunia sudah jadi neraka sebelum Neraka. Kehidupan di dunia hari ini sudah tidak ada erti apa-apa lagi.Manusia terancam oleh nafsunya sendiri.
