Response to first execution in Thailand since 2009

Veröffentlicht am mit Keine Kommentare

“According to the third national human rights master plan on the justice system for 2014 to 2018, Thailand had a road map to suspend all executions in the country by 2014, amend the Criminal Code to legally abolish the death penalty by 2017, and ratify the Second Optional Protocol to the ICCPR by this year.” Yesterday’s execution of a murderer at the Bang Kwan Prison in Bangkok caught Thais and right’s groups by surprise. Thailand had signalled it’s intention to move towards abolition of capital punishment in recent years. So Thailand’s first execution in nine years is sparking public debate on the death penalty, which retains strong support among most Thais despite concerns raised by academics and activists about human rights violations and its effectiveness as a deterrent.
