Sadakat Kadri’s report on mandatory capital punishment

16.05.16 | |

In the run up to a September vote on the death penalty at the UN General Assembly, Sadakat Kadri has written a report for IBAHRI and the Geneva Academy, on the place of mandatory capital punishment under international and Islamic law.


The report, Forced to Kill: The Mandatory Death Penalty and its Incompatibility with Fair Trail Standards charts an encouraging growth in the number of UN states opposed to the mandatory death penalty, and finds that only a maximum of 37 countries mandate the death penalty today, and even fewer actually carry out the punishment in practice.
