CHINESE PREMIER LI KEQIANG DEFENDS USE OF DEATH PENALTY

September 22, 2016: Chinese Premier Li Keqiang defended his country’s continued reliance on the death penalty while visiting Ottawa, even as he and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continue to work toward a formal extradition treaty.
Li was asked about capital punishment in China by reporters on Parliament Hill, and responded that China is one of many nations that still use the death penalty to punish serious crimes.
He cited the country’s enormous population as one of the reasons it has not been abolished, arguing that more innocent people could be hurt if the punishment were not so severe.
“In the society there are often crimes, and violent crimes,” Li added, standing next to Trudeau.
Li said that movies and television shows may depict torture in the Chinese judicial system, and he cannot guarantee that this never occurs. But his country is moving toward a law-based society.
“Chinese law clearly provides that there must be strict compliance with judicial procedures and there shall be no torture,” the premier said. “Humanitarian treatment must be applied.”
The death penalty question may present a serious problem for the Trudeau government as the two countries move toward an extradition treaty. Even the mention of such a treaty has already prompted criticism from human rights groups because of concerns about China’s lack of due process.
The government recently announced the possible deal after Trudeau’s national security adviser, Daniel Jean, went to Beijing on Sept. 12 and agreed to start talks about an extradition treaty as part of a broader security dialogue.
On Thursday, Trudeau pointed out that Canada and China have been talking about extradition “for years.”
“Up until now, it’s been on an ad-hoc basis,” he explained, adding that under no circumstances will Chinese citizens be sent home to be executed.
“Because we do not have capital punishment in Canada… we will not extradite into situations of capital punishment,” Trudeau said. (Sources: Globalnews.ca, 22/09/2016)
