Embassies Jointly Call For Abolition Of Death Sentence In Zim

Heads of Mission of Australia, Canada, the Delegation of the European Union, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom have jointly called for the abolition of the death penalty in Zimbabwe.

We present the statement in full below:

On the World Day Against the Death Penalty, Australia, Canada, the Delegation of the European Union, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom reaffirm our continuing, deeply held belief in abolition of the death penalty, and commitment to working for universal abolition.

We welcome Zimbabwe’s important deliberations on this issue, and President Mnangagwa’s leadership on it.

Abolition of the death penalty is one of many key indicators of a state’s commitment to the respect and promotion of human rights and human dignity.

In light of the broad and farreaching support in Zimbabwe for abolition – as reflected in, for example, the report of The Death Penalty Project’- we encourage the Government of Zimbabwe to make 2020 the year for abolishing the death penalty in this country.

In Harare, on 10 October 2020

  1. The death penalty must remain and will remain, these sentences are not given lightly and for those who deserve it must receive it. These western countries must attend to their burning shitholes or speak to the middle east about kicking homos off of roof tops before coming to talk shit here.
