Ce jour, nous nous tenons à côté d'un grand nombre de nos partenaires au Liban et partageons leurs espoirs pour que l'abolition soit une réalité.

Today, on the European and World Day against the Death Penalty, the Council of Europe and the European Union reaffirm their strong and unequivocal opposition to capital punishment in all circumstances and for all cases. The death penalty is incompatible with human dignity. It is inhuman and degrading treatment, does not have any proven significant deterrent effect, and allows judicial errors to become irreversible and fatal.


Hari ini, pada Hari Anti-Hukuman Mati Sedunia dan Eropa, Majelis Eropa dan Uni Eropa menegaskan kembali sikap mereka menentang keras dan tegas terhadap hukuman mati dalam segala situasi dan untuk semua jenis kasus kejahatan. Hukuman mati tidak sesuai dengan martabat manusia. Hukuman mati adalah perlakuan yang tidak manusiawi dan merendahkan martabat, tidak terbukti secara signifikan menimbulkan efek jera, dan apabila terjadi kesalahan peradilan maka hal tersebut tidak dapat diubah dan merupakan tindakan fatal.

Cet accord axé sur le développement conclu avec cinq pays d'Afrique australe garantit dès à présent aux exportations de ces pays un accès au marché de l'Union européenne en franchise de droits et sans contingents.

The universal abolition of the death penalty is one of the core objectives of the European Union in the field of Human Rights. Despite long-term improvements regarding the abolitionist cause – there are now 141 formally or nominally abolitionist states – the balance of the year 2015 is somewhat bleak. Old moratoria were challenged, debates on the reinstatement of the death penalty in several countries resurfaced, and the number of executions recorded in the last year - 1634 executions - has been the highest since the 1990’s.
