Gambia – Announcement of the forthcoming execution of all prisoners condemned to death (21.08.12)
Gambia has applied a de facto moratorium on the death penalty since 1981. France therefore urges Gambia to maintain this moratorium with a view toward the definitive abolition of the death penalty, and not to execute these death row prisoners. It also demands that Gambia commute all death sentences to custodial sentences.
