Mongolia To Abolish Death Penalty

President of Mongolia, Mr Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj, has led the way for the death penalty to be abolished in Mongolia from September 2016. He said that the threat of executions does not have a deterrent effect and the risk of a miscarriage of justice is inherent in any system of justice. Lawmakers on Thursday voted in favour of a new Criminal code that abolishes this type of penalty for all crimes, which is a clear victory for human rights.

In 2010, the President Ts.Elbegdorj commuted all death sentences and announced a moratorium on all executions. In 2012, Mongolia ratified an international treaty committing the country to the abolition of the death penalty.

Amnesty International declared that the countries that continue to execute have been shown a clear path to follow to end this cruel and inhumane punishment. There remain 37 countries worldwide which retain the death penalty, including the United States, China and Japan.
