CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IN MALAYSIA AND GLOBALLY: "A TOOL FOR JUSTICE OR A WEAPON AGAINST HUMANITY"
by GURU DHILLON*, DR NOOR MOHAMMAD**, NG YIH MIIN***

MALAYSIA Introduction The death sentence or capital punishment has been commonly applied for centuries. The death sentence can be dated back to ancient history although no one can pinpoint where such an idea actually originated from. This draconian sentence once haunted society on a global scale and is well rooted in the national law. The death sentence is a punishment applied to a wide variety of offences spanning from the most severe cases to even petty theft. Capital punishment has been carried out through various methods and include, amongst others; the guillotine,[1] crucifixion,[2] boiling in oil,[3] death by hanging,[4] lethal injection,[5] electric chair,[6] shooting[7] and stoning to death.[8]
