Singapore has hanged 46-year-old Tangaraju Suppiah who was found guilty in 2018 of trafficking more than 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cannabis, despite last-minute appeals for clemency from his family and activists.
Anti-death penalty campaigner Kirsten Han wrote on twitter said his family said they had been given Tangaraju’s death certificate.
A spokesperson for the country’s prison service told newsmen that the sentence had been carried out at Changi prison in the island’s east.
Tangaraju Suppiah was sentenced to death in 2018 for abetting the attempted trafficking of just more than 1kilogram of cannabis.
A judge found he was using a phone number that was communicating with traffickers attempting to smuggle the drugs into Singapore.
