China: Petition: Stop executions!

, Index number: ASA 17/027/2008

Using this petition, signatories can express their concern over the extensive use of the death penalty in China. China executes more people than every other country in the world put together. The petition urges the regular publication of official statistics on the total number of death sentences and executions and the reduction in the number of crimes punishable by death, by removing economic and drug-related crimes from the scope of the death penalty.
