Japan: Amnesty International urges Japan to halt executions
Human Rights Council adopts Universal Periodic Review outcome on Japan. Amnesty International is alarmed at the continued use of the death penalty in Japan, including the two most recent executions on 19 December 2017. These acts breach the right to life and the right to live free from torture. The organization is deeply disappointed at Japan’s rejection of recommendations on the death penalty; this shows an unwillingness by the authorities to engage on this important human rights issue.
