PRESENTATION OF HANDS OFF CAIN'S 2011 REPORT ‘THE DEATH PENALTY WORLDWIDE’

July 29, 2011: Hands Off Cain is an international association that, together with the Radical Party, is conducting a campaign for a moratorium on capital punishment. It is with pleasure that we invite you to the presentation of our 2011 Report “The Death Penalty Worldwide”.
The presentation will be held on August 4 at 11.30am, at our headquarters in Rome, at 76 Via di Torre Argentina (third floor). In attendance will be Foreign Minister Franco Frattini and Taïeb Baccouche, Education Minister and spokesperson of the Transitional Tunisian Government.
Hands Off Cain's 2011 Report contains the most important facts regarding the practice of the death penalty in 2010 and the first six months of 2011. This year's data shows that China, Iran and North Korea were the three countries with the highest number of executions in 2010. However, the data also confirms the positive global evolution towards the abolition of the death penalty that has been happening for more than ten years.
In particular, in the Arab world, the positive wave of liberation from longstanding regimes seem to foreshadow solutions to the adherence to systems and practices of the past.
From this point of view, the attendance of Minister Baccouche, the President of the Arab Institute for Human Rights, is particularly significant. The interim national unity Tunisian government ratified the Rome Statute on the establishment of the International Criminal Court and also announced the ratification of the Second Optional Protocol of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, regarding the abolition of the death penalty.
During the event we will also present the objectives of Hands Off Cain's campaign for realising the UN Resolution on the Universal Moratorium on Capital Punishment, that was approved last December by the UN General Assembly.
The presentation will be held in Italian, with English and French interpreting services provided. (Sources: HOC, 29/07/2011)
