He has been locked up in Changi Prison for the past 3 years.

Yong comes from a broken family and when he was 3 yeas old his parents divorced, the mother is a mental patient.

The rest is history.
A poor young boy got caught in the wrong company, was in the wrong place at the wrong time doing the wrong thing…
22 year old Yong Vui Kong a Malaysian, could be anyone or everyone.
WHY is Malaysia not intervening in this case of young Yong Vui Kong on death row in Singapore? Why? Is it is because he is Chinese? Is it because he is Sabahan? I hope not!
But, in the past, Malaysia has intervened in cases outside the country, the case of a young university science graduate Umi Azlim Mohamad Lazim, 24. Remember? This was in China in 2008 where Umi who was charged with the death penalty for having 2.9 kilograms of heroin in her luggage. Umno and PAS actively campaigned to free Umi, and Umi’s death sentence was actually commute to life when the Malaysian government intervened.
So, why is the Malaysian government not doing anything to help Yong?
