Sri Lanka: Further information: Supreme court suspends all execution warrants

, Index number: ASA 37/0680/2019

The Sri Lankan Supreme Court, while hearing the petitions to halt executions of death row prisoners, suspended all execution warrants until 29 October, the next date of hearing. This is a huge source of relief, as the 13 prisoners are no longer in imminent danger of being hanged.
