Most recently, Salil Shetty has been quoted saying: “China wants to be a leader on the world stage, but when it comes to the death penalty it is leading in the worst possible way – executing more people annually than any other country in the world. It is high time for China to lift the veil on this deadly secret and finally come clean about its death penalty system.” in the article China urged to come clean about ‘grotesque’ level of capital punishment.

Jan 22 2014 - Cyprus

Absolutely, absolutely. I think it's a matter of great shame. And you know, the net result if you don't take systematic actions, as the UN special rapporteur for example has said that Europe can easily take 250,000 refugees a year for the next five years. Now, if you don't take action today the fact that Syrian refugees are going to keep coming in Europe. That's going to happen because Nicosia which is the furthest point in Europe is not that far from Damascus, a couple of hundred miles. So, they will find their way here.feedback

What we normally recommend is that before austerity measures are put in place an essential prerequisite for governments is to look the human rights impact that these are going to have particularly on vulnerable populations. So, for example if you are going to do something in relation to public housing if people are going to be forcibly evicted from public housing because of an austerity measure, I think that it's absolutely essential that the European institutions and the member states take cognisance of this beforehand and not after the event.feedback

The dictators have gone in many of these countries in transition, but not the dictatorships. So we have to keep our eyes very carefully on these places. We hope that in respect of who becomes the president, there are some absolute urgent things to do.feedback
