Papua New Guinea: Death penalty proposals put lives at risk
At least ten people under sentence of death will be at risk of execution if legal amendments to facilitate the resumption of executions are passed in Papua New Guinea. The Government has announced that Parliament will imminently debate these draft legal changes. Executions have not taken place in the country since 1954.
