Living in limbo: Benin's last death row prisoners

, Index number: ACT 50/4980/2017

Benin is committed not to execute them yet it has not commuted their death sentences. The uncertainty that hangs over the 14 death row prisoners needs to be resolved urgently through the commutation of their death sentences.
