The Death Penalty in the Arab World 2010



ACHRS and the Arab Coalition against the Death Penalty

ACHRS considers the death penalty the ultimate denial of human rights. It is the premeditated and cold-blooded killing of a human being by the state. This cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment is done in the name of justice.

It violates the right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Amman Center for Human Rights Studies opposes the death penalty in all cases without exception regardless of the nature of the crime, the characteristics of the offender, or the method used by the state to kill the prisoner.
