The death penalty does little to deter crime - and wrongful convictions are inevitable.

It has no place in the 21st century.

On Sunday's World Day against the Death Penalty, show your support for ending executions. https://www.ohchr.org/EN/Issues/DeathPenalty/Pages/DPIndex.aspx

The 🇬🇧 strongly welcomes the adoption of the resolution on the question of the death penalty at #HRC48.

We firmly believe the use of the death penalty undermines human dignity and there is no conclusive evidence of its deterrent value.
