European Union calls Taiwan to stop executing inmates


After another execution of inmate happened last April 1, 2020. The European Union's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has condemned the action of the government of Taiwan. And they reiterated that they strongly opposed the execution of the death penalty under any circumstances and they called Taiwan to stop any execution.

According to the EEAS, " the European Union opposes the use of the death penalty, arguing that the death penalty is a cruel and inhuman punishment, which is neither deterrent, but also denies the dignity of human nature"

Last Wednesday, afternoon, April 1, 2020, when Minister of Justice Tsai Ching-hsiang had signed an order of death sentenced to a 53 years old Weng Jen-hsien who had been convicted for killing six people.

At present, there are 39 remaining convicts waiting for their execution. The last execution that happened last was August 31, 2018. This is the second time under the presidency of Tsai Ing-wen when inmates had been executed.
