CHINESE DEATH ROW PRISONER ENDS LIFE
The family of Li Xin, a Chinese man facing execution, reports that he ended his life on 29 January.
Exact details of his death are unavailable.
Li Xin was sentenced to death for trafficking, selling and transporting 1,925 grams of methamphetamines by the Dehong Daizu Jingpozu Autonomous Prefecture Intermediate People’s Court in Yunnan Province on 6 December 2011. The Yunnan Provincial Higher People’s Court upheld the sentence on 14 May 2012. In December 2012, the Supreme People’s Court in Beijing began the case review, after which he could have been executed.
There is no need to take further action on this case. Many thanks to all who sent appeals.
