Iran – Execution of 10 Iranians charged with drug trafficking (October 12, 2012)

France condemns the latest executions today in Iran. More than 350 executions occurred in 2012, making Iran the country with the highest per capita death penalty rate.

As Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs, solemnly declared at the launch of the campaign for the universal abolition of the death penalty, France reaffirms its constant opposition to the use of the death penalty everywhere and under all circumstances.
