Still Waters Posted March 10 #1 Share Posted March 10 (IP: Staff) · Belarus’s authoritarian president has signed a bill introducing capital punishment for state officials and military personnel convicted of high treason. The amendments to the country’s criminal code endorsed by President Alexander Lukashenko envisage death sentences for officials and service personnel who cause “irreparable damage” to Belarus’s national security through acts of treason. Belarus is the only country in Europe that has not banned capital punishment, which has been applied to those convicted of murder or terrorism. Executions are carried out with a shot to the back of the head. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/mar/09/russia-ally-belarus-brings-in-death-penalty-for-high-treason https://www.dw.com/en/belarus-approves-death-penalty-for-high-treason/a-64938840 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
