United States – Texas – Execution of a Mexican citizen deprived of consular protection (January 23, 2014)
France condemns the execution in Texas of Mexican citizen, Edgar Tamayo Arias.
France reaffirms its firm and constant opposition to the death penalty throughout the world. This is a position that we defend together with all our EU partners in all countries of the world.
Our diplomatic network is fully committed to this priority, wherever the death penalty continues to be applied. As an observer member of the Organization of American States, France is engaged in promoting the abolition of the death penalty on the American continent.
