FIACAT’s contribution to the United Nations Secretary-General’s 2015 annual supplement to his quinquennial report on capital punishment

April 2015

[English] [français]

The aim of this document is to inform the Secretary-General of the United Nations about the use of the death penalty since March 2014 in certain African countries where members of the FIACAT network are active. While in detention in these countries, people sentenced to death are subject to numerous violations of their fundamental rights.

However, some improvements regarding the death penalty have been observed in Africa.

There have been some developments in certain countries in the African continent during this year; FIACAT and the ACATs have been able to gather information on the subject and have worked towards the abolition of the death penalty in Africa: Benin, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Madagascar, Mali, Niger and Togo.
