The Barlow and Chambers execution refers to the hanging in 1986 by Malaysia of two Australian citizens, Charles John Barlow and Brian Geoffrey Chambers of Perth, Western Australia, for the drug trafficking of 141.9g of heroin. The two men became the first Westerners to be executed under Malaysia''s new tougher laws for drug offences that prescribe death for anyone convicted of having over 15 grams of heroin. Barlow was born in the UK in Stoke-on-Trent and held dual British nationality. Barlow''s family made appeals to UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to make a protest about the impending execution, and an appeal for clemency to the Malaysian government from Australian politician Bill Hayden was made.
