Заявление Верховного Представителя ЕС от имени Европейского Союза по случаю Международного дня прекращения безнаказанности за преступления против журналистов - 2 ноября 2019 г.

Freedom of expression, in all its forms, is the very essence of democracy. Only with a thriving, free and independent media landscape, we can hold governments, businesses and society at large accountable. And precisely for this fundamental right, far too often, journalists and media workers are attacked, persecuted, harassed, or intimidated for carrying out their work. Most journalists are not wounded in the heat of war coverage, but suffer violence in our immediate surroundings. In 2018 alone, 94 journalists and media staff were killed in work-related incidents as reported by the International Federation of Journalists. Hundreds more have been subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention without ever having been tried in a court.

A União Europeia (UE) e o Conselho da Europa opõem-se veementemente ao recurso à pena de morte em qualquer momento e em qualquer circunstância. A pena de morte é uma punição cruel, desumana e degradante que viola o direito à vida. A pena de morte significa vingança e não justiça, e a sua abolição contribui para reforçar a dignidade humana.
