Mongolia – Abolition of the death penalty (Monday 09 January 2012)
France welcomes the Mongolian Parliament’s decision to abolish the death penalty by ratifying the Second Additional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
France also welcomes the commitment made to that effect by the President of Mongolia, Mr. Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, who imposed a moratorium in January 2010.
France reaffirms its constant commitment, and that of Europe, to abolishing the death penalty anywhere, whatever the circumstances.
