2014 World Day Against the Death Penalty: Protecting people with mental and intellectual disabilities from the use of the death penalty
This document provides an overview of the main issues relating to the use of the death penalty against people with mental or intellectual disabilities. Amnesty International opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception, regardless of the nature or circumstances of the crime, the guilt, innocence or other characteristics of the offender, or the method used by the state to carry out the execution. The death penalty violates the right to life and is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment.
