Iraq: Halt imminent executions after new batch of death sentences ratified
Amnesty International has today called on the Iraqi President, Fuad Ma’sum, to overturn the ratification of death sentences which would pave the way for imminent executions, despite longstanding concerns that scores of people in Iraq have been convicted and sentenced to death after grossly unfair trials. The organization renewed its call for the establishment of an immediate moratorium on all executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty.
