Iraq – Execution of 6 prisoners sentenced to death (October 5, 2012)
France condemns the execution of 6 detainees yesterday in Iraq. This brings the number of prisoners who have been executed since the beginning of the year in Iraq to 102.
We’ve already had an opportunity to express our concern regarding the increasing use of the death penalty in Iraq.
While Laurent Fabius has just launched a campaign for the universal abolition of the death penalty, France reaffirms its firm and constant opposition to the use of the death penalty everywhere and under all circumstances.
