Tajikistan: Open letter from a coalition of non-governmental organizations to Emomali Rahmon, President of the Republic of Tajikistan
Tajikistan has not sentenced to death or executed anyone since the country’s moratorium took effect in April 2004. The organizations signing this appeal believe that the time is ripe to fully abolish the death penalty in Tajikistan and are therefore calling on the President to make the prompt and full abolition of the death penalty and the ratification of the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights a priority on the government’s agenda.
