Amnesty International Death Sentences & Executions Report 2014 - Malaysia Launch
WHETHER IN A HIGH-PROFILE CONFLICT OR A FORGOTTEN CORNER OF THE GLOBE,
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGNS FOR JUSTICE, FREEDOM AND DIGNITY FOR
ALL AND SEEKS TO GALVANIZE PUBLIC SUPPORT TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD.
This report covers the judicial use of the death penalty for the period January to December 2014. As in previous years, information is collected from a variety of sources, including:
official figures; information from individuals sentenced to death and their families and representatives; reporting by other civil society organizations; and media reports.
Amnesty International reports only on executions, death sentences and other aspects of the use of the death penalty, such as commutations and exonerations, where there is reasonable
confirmation. In many countries governments do not publish information on their use of the death penalty, making confirmation of the use challenging.
In Belarus, China and Viet Nam, data on the use of the death penalty is classified as a state secret.
During 2014 little or no information was available on some countries - in particular Eritrea, Malaysia, North Korea and Syria, due to restrictive state practice and/or political instability.
Therefore, with only a few exceptions, Amnesty International’s figures on the use of the death penalty are minimum figures. Where we obtain fuller information on a specific country in a given year this is noted in the report.
