In China the death penalty is still being used to execute thousands and thousands of people yearly. It is estimated that China contribute to 60-80% of total death sentences and executions in the world.
Although these statistics are only estimated as the death penalty is a state secret and statistic are not produced, it is speculated that that this is because the actual death sentences may be very high than estimated and may cause embarrassment.
We, the undersigned, wish to call on the Chinese Government to abolish the death penalty.
