PENA MORTE: RUSSIA, RESTA IMPEGNO SU MORATORIA

MOSCA, - Mosca intende aderire al suo impegno riguardante la moratoria sulla pena di morte, che scade il primo gennaio 2010. Lo ha assicurato la portavoce del Cremlino Natalia Timakova, citata dall'agenzia Itar-Tass.

''La questione dell'abolizione della moratoria sulla pena di morte non viene esaminata ne' nell'amministrazione presidenziale ne' nel mondo giudiziario'', ha detto.

Russia says death penalty moratorium will remain

The Kremlin says Russia will continue to maintain a moratorium on capital punishment.

 Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's spokeswoman Nataliya Timakova says neither the presidential administration nor the Russian judiciary are considering an end to it.

 Timakova's comments Tuesday came in response to a report in this week's edition of the Russian Newsweek magazine, which claimed that the Kremlin is thinking about lifting the moratorium.

 Russia pledged to abolish the death penalty when it joined the Council of Europe in 1996 and has maintained a moratorium on executions since then. But it has failed to outlaw the death penalty due to strong public support for it.
