Presentazione del Rapporto 2010 di Nessuno tocchi Caino
HANDS OFF CAIN PRESENTS THE 2010 REPORT ON THE DEATH PENALTY WORLDWIDE

July 31, 2010: the 2010 Report on the death penalty worldwide, edited by Elisabetta Zamparutti, was presented by Hands Off Cain at their headquarters in Rome. Attending the press conference was the President of the African Union Commission, Jean Ping. Mr Ping was awarded the “2010 Abolitionist of the Year” award, given by Hands Off Cain in recognition of the person who above all others was committed to the moratorium on capital punishment and the abolition of the death penalty.

Senate Vice President Emma Bonino, undersecretary to the Council President Gianni Letta, Foreign Affairs undersecretary Vincenzo Scotti, Hands Off Cain president Marco Pannella, Hands Off Cain honourary president Aldo Ajello, Hands Off Cain Secretary Sergio D’Elia and Elisabetta Zamparutti all participated. Ambassadors and numerous representatives of foreign embassies were also present.
During the conference, undersecretary to the Council President Gianni Letta said: "The commitment by this government makes up for preceding governments in successfully taking on concrete initiatives for the abolition of the death penalty." The undersecretary thanked Senate Vice President Emma Bonino and Radical leader Marco Pannella for their commitment. He emphasised that "despite often having different ideas, I have always appreciated this type of battle. The government will always be by your side in future initiatives."
 Chamber President Gianfranco Fini wrote in a message sent to the Association that "the death penalty strengthens a logic of violence and abuse that casts a shadow on the conscience of the entire collective human race and on its civil, moral and judicial progress. Its worldwide abolition constitutes an important objective for promoting a model of humanity coherently founded on the dignity of the individual as well as the rule of law and justice." After having reminded that "an important step forward was taken on December 18, 2007, with the approval of the resolution by the United Nations General Assembly," the Chamber president continued: "the terrible news presented by the 2010 report on the executions carried out in countries where the death penalty is still employed today confirms the necessity of not losing the commitment, by the entire international community, to constantly find a more effective strategy for the abolition of the death penalty at a global level. The strategy must be based on creating awareness and influencing worldwide public opinion and on the initiatives of governments and organisations."
Foreign Affairs undersecretary Vincenzo Scotti, interviewed at the conference, emphasised that the abolition of the death penalty is “a daily quest for everyone. An objective to be achieved through patience, consistency and through the strength of dialogue.”
Finally, Senate President Renato Schifani, through a greeting delivered by vice-president Emma Bonino, said that the choosing Jean Ping to receive the award showed the positive and encouraging abolitionist force in the African continent. (Sources: Agi, Ansa, 31/07/2010)
