USA (Georgia) : Death penalty / Legal concern for Alexander Edmund Williams

, Index number: AMR 51/129/2000

Alexander Williams is scheduled to be put to death in Georgia's electric chair for a murder committed when he was 17 years old. International law forbids the use of the death penalty for crimes committed by those under 18. If executed, Alex Williams would become the fifth child offender put to death in the USA this year, more than the total combined number of such executions in the rest of the world since August 1993.
