Déclaration des Chefs des missions diplomatiques européennes au Bangladesh à l’occasion de la journée internationale et de la journée européenne contre la peine de mort

Déclaration des chefs des missions diplomatiques représentées à Dhaka le 10 octobre, à l’occasion de la journée internationale contre la peine de mort et de la journée européenne contre la peine de mort :

" The European Union reaffirms its absolute opposition to the use of the death penalty. The European Union is convinced that its abolition is an integral part of respect for human rights and protection of human dignity.

The death penalty concerns everyone’s right to life. The state, with its particular responsibility as the ultimate guarantor of all persons’ human rights, should not deprive anyone of his or her life.

The European Union encourages all measures taken with a view to abolishing the death penalty. The European Union further recalls Resolution 65/206, which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly at its 71st plenary session in December 2010, and which inter alia calls upon all states in the world to establish a moratorium on executions with a view to abolishing the death penalty.

We hope that all members of the UN including Bangladesh will take the actions which the Resolution calls for, and thereby contribute more to the development of fundamental rights and human dignity in the world.
