Q : Following yesterday’s death sentence for Félix Dorfin in Indonesia, can you tell us how many French nationals have been sentenced to death around the world?
A : We are concerned by the verdict that was just handed down against our compatriot. We take note of his desire to appeal. He has been receiving consular protection since his arrest in September 2018. We are closely monitoring his situation.
Seven French nationals have been sentenced to death around the world. France reaffirms its unwavering opposition to the death penalty everywhere and in all circumstances. It will continue to work toward that end, and to have sentences commuted.
