Statement on the death penalty case of Mr Billy Agbozo and Mr Hishamrudin bin Mohd
Switzerland is saddened by the news of the execution of Ghanaian national Mr. Billy Agbozo by the Singapore authorities on 9 March 2018 and recalls its opposition to the use of capital punishment.
Switzerland, further calls on Singapore authorities to halt the execution of Singaporean national, Mr. Hishamrudin bin Mohd, scheduled to be executed on Friday 16 March 2018 and to commute his sentence. We have repeatedly called on Singaporean authorities to adopt a moratorium on all executions - as have the EU with its member states and Norway (EU Statement).
Switzerland holds a strong and principled position against the death penalty and is opposed to the use of capital punishment under any circumstances. The death penalty is cruel and inhuman, and has not proven to be a deterrent to crime. Switzerland is therefore committed to continue working towards the abolition of the death penalty worldwide. The global trend is towards abolition and Switzerland encourages Singapore to join the growing community of nations which have abolished the death penalty.
