TO THE SPEAKER AND MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES and

THE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE SENATE OF AUSTRALIA

This petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia draws the attention of the Parliament of Australia to the fact that there are currently no Federal Laws to prohibit the use of capital punishment against Australian citizens at home or abroad.

We request that the House of Representatives and the Senate legislate at the earliest opportunity to introduce and pass laws that prohibit the use of capital punishment against all Australian citizens. We also seek that this Government and all future Governments protect Australian citizens from the death penalty in other countries.

We further seek the expansion of the current repatriation program and move to have all Australian citizens serving a custodial sentence in a foreign country repatriated to Australia.
