Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has granted a pardon to Shahrul Izani Suparman who was on death row after being convicted of drug possession.

At a press conference today, Amnesty International Malaysia executive director Shamini Darshni said Shahrul's family was informed of this on Monday, although it would appear that the pardon was issued late last year.

"The family has been told Shahrul may apply for clemency in another four years," said Shamini.
