Law Council Supports UN Vote to Halt Executions

Wed Dec 19 2007

The Law Council has welcomed a landmark resolution by the United Nations which calls for an immediate moratorium on executions as a first step towards the universal abolition of the death penalty.

Law Council President Ross Ray QC said, “This historic resolution sends a powerful message that the majority of the world’s nations are not only committed to the abolition of the death penalty within their own jurisdictions, but are also committed to ending executions beyond their borders.”
