The UK believes that the exercise of the death penalty undermines human dignity; any miscarriage of justice leading to its imposition is irreversible and irreparable, and there isn’t any conclusive evidence of it working as a deterrent to crime.
We oppose the death penalty in all circumstances as a topic of notion. We strongly make stronger the UN Traditional Assembly Resolution for the moratorium on the exercise of the death penalty and advocate for the decreased exercise of the death penalty foreign.
We lend a hand continuous advancement in opposition to world abolition of the death penalty. So, we welcomed Kazakhstan’s steps in opposition to abolishing the death penalty for all crimes in January 2021. In the US, while we’re gay that an increasing collection of states get abolished the death penalty and hope others apply suit, we were disillusioned by the collection of federal executions in recent months below the old Administration and lend a hand the recent Administration to abolish the federal death penalty.
The continued exercise of the death penalty globally, especially in opposition to centered and inclined groups, remains a concern. We advocate the right to non-discrimination and equality for the marginalised, which encompass members of non secular minorities, of the LGBTI community, and these suffering with mental illness, and glean in contact with for an conclude of the death penalty in opposition to juvenile and inclined offenders.
