European Parliament again urges Belarus to abolish death penalty

The European Parliament once again called on Belarus to introduce moratorium on the death penalty. This demand is set force in one of the paragraphs of the European Parliament resolution dated to the World Day against the Death Penalty.

The resolution underlines that Belarus remains the only European country where the death penalty is still used, and reminds about the repeated calls of the PACE and the EU to abolish this inhuman penalty.

As it is stated in the document, the European Parliament is seriously concerned with the fairness of the court proceedings in Belarus and the fact that the bodies of the executed convicts aren’t passed to their relatives and they aren’t even provided with any information about the place of burial.
