Anthony Briggs was hanged on the morning of 28 July 1999. Amnesty International is concerned that the execution went ahead despite the fact that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights had recommended that his death sentence be commuted, and the Inter-American Court on Human Rights had issued an order to the government to preserve his life until it had considered his case.
