EU speaks out against the death penalty

‘We consider capital punishment to be inhumane, and a violation of human dignity,’ reads a joint declaration from EU High Representative Catherine Ashton and Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland.

“The declaration was released to mark the European and world day against the death penalty on 10 October. It reaffirms both institutions’ opposition to the death penalty, and their continued commitment to its abolition worldwide.”
