Statement by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini on the occasion of the United Nations Day

On the European and World Day against the Death Penalty, the Council of Europe and the European Union (EU) reiterate their strong opposition to capital punishment in all circumstances and for all cases.

The death penalty has no established deterrent effect and it makes judicial errors irreversible.
