Emerging Europe is close to fully abolishing the death penalty

20/10/2020 - 20:46

The United Nations Human Rights Council describes capital punishment as inhumane, ineffective in fighting crime, and inconsistent with the most basic human right – the right to life.

According to emergingeurope.com, while the majority of states worldwide have entirely abolished the death penalty, including most of emerging Europe, the governments of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan have so far failed to fully put an end to the internationally-condemned practice.

This could soon be changing though, as pressure to abolish this type of punishment is mounting in all three states.

As Kazakhstan continues its efforts to achieve sustained economic prosperity and attract foreign investment, a number of foreign governments and international organisations have on multiple occasions reminded the state that it needs to improve its human rights record if it wants to reap the full benefits of being a part of the international community.
