HRCP Stop Hanging of Prisoners  Human Rights Commission of Pakistan requests your urgent intervention in the following situation  

Description of the situation:

Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has been approached by a number of prisoners on death row stating that the present government has once again started issuing black warrants and fixed the date of the hanging in some prisoners on death row.  Human Rights Commission of Pakistan expresses its grave concern about the issuing of black warrants and fixing the date of execution of prisoners on death row in different jails of Punjab, particularly in Bahawalpur jail. It is beyond comprehension why the present government having put a moratorium for the many years on executions has suddenly changed its policy. Action requested Please write to the President of Pakistan:

1. To stop the execution of prisoners on death row and put a permanent moratorium 

2. To abolish death penalty in Pakistan  

Sample We express our deep concern on the issuing of black warrants toprisoners on death row and fixing the date of their execution.We demand that executions are immediately halted.We urge that death penalty in Pakistan should be permanently abolished.We demand that the government of Pakistan should sign the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, aimed at the abolition of the death penalty.
