Death Sentences and Executions- 2014

Apr 01, 2015

This report by Amnesty International covers the judicial use of the death penalty for the period January to December 2014.

April 1, 2015: According to the Amnesty International’s Death Penalty report-2014, at least 607 people were executed in 22 countries in 2014. This reflects a drop of almost 22% compared to 2013, when Amnesty recorded at least 778 executions in 22 countries worldwide.

Most executions took place in China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the USA – in that order, the report says.

China executed more people than the rest of the world put together – but the true extent of the use of the death penalty in China is unknown as this data is considered a state secret; the figure of 607 excludes the number of executions carried out in China.
