Agenda

International Campaign - Stop child executions!

Campaign

Date

Wednesday 21st of January 2004 - Saturday 31st of December 2005

Description

The use of the death penalty against child offenders - people under 18 at the time of the crime - is clearly prohibited under international law, yet a handful of countries persist with child executions.

Since January 1990 Amnesty International has documented 35 executions of child offenders in eight countries– the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, the USA, China and Yemen. The USA carried out 19 executions – more than all other countries combined.
