On the recent execution in Singapore: Statement by the Spokesperson

Following the recent execution of a convict in Singapore, the European Union recalls its opposition to the use of capital punishment. The European Union believes that the death penalty is a cruel and inhumane punishment and has consistently called for its universal abolition.

The European Union calls on the Singaporean authorities to stop all pending executions and to reinstate its earlier moratorium on capital punishment as a first step towards definitive abolition of the death penalty.
