EU urges to maintain moratorium on death penalty

The EU Heads of Mission (HoMs) received a visit by a group of United National Party parliamentarians today (18) to discuss the death penalty.

During the meeting, the HoMs restated the strong and unequivocal opposition of the EU and its Member States to capital punishment in all circumstances and in all cases.

The HoMs reiterated their call to Sri Lanka to maintain its moratorium on the death penalty with a view towards complete abolition.
