Statement by the Spokesperson on the execution of Mr Ahmad Najib Aris in Malaysia

 

The recent execution of Mr Ahmad Najib Aris in Malaysia – after serving 11 years on death row – runs counter to global trends towards establishing a moratorium on the use of capital punishment.

 

The European Union is opposed to the use of capital punishment under any circumstances. The death penalty is a cruel and inhumane punishment and we have  consistently called for its universal abolition. Experience worldwide has also demonstrated that the death penalty fails to act as a deterrent to crime.

 

The review of the use of the death penalty, as announced by the Malaysian authorities, should begin as soon as possible and lead to the establishment of a moratorium on executions as a first step towards the universal abolition of the death penalty.
