Mongolia: Logistical challenges should not delay abolition of death penalty and measures to combat torture
On 30 August 2016 the Parliament of Mongolia adopted a law which postpones the implementation of the new Criminal Code by a further ten months. Amnesty International expresses its disappointment that Mongolia’s new Criminal Code will not come into force until July 2017, a delay of nearly a year, and urges the government and the parliament to work together to reverse this decision and swiftly move to abolish the death penalty and prohibit torture.
