Death Sentences and Executions 2016

, Index number: ACT 50/5740/2017

This report covers the judicial use of the death penalty for the period January to December 2016. Amnesty International reports only on executions, death sentences and other aspects of the use of the death penalty, such as commutations and exonerations, where there is reasonable confirmation. In many countries governments do not publish information on their use of the death penalty, making confirmation of the use challenging.
