Thailand: Fear of imminent execution: At least 36 people on death row

, Index number: ASA 39/003/1999

Amnesty International is gravely concerned that at least 36 people face imminent execution having exhausted all appeals against their death sentences. These fears are heightened by the execution of five men on 8 October 1999, bringing the number of executions so far this year to 13. This represents an alarming acceleration since the resumption of executions in January 1996.
