Taiwán ejecuta a cuatro condenados a muerte en medio de críticas

Taipei, 4 mar - Taiwán ejecutó a cinco condenados a muerte, en la segunda tanda de ejecuciones tras ponerse fin el 30 de abril de 2010 a una moratoria iniciada en 2005, informó el Ministerio de Justicia isleño.
Las ejecuciones desencadenaron críticas de grupos cívicos, pero la aplicación de la pena de muerte cuenta con apoyo mayoritario en los sondeos realizados en la isla. El Ministerio de Justicia anunció en abril de 2010 su intención de reiniciar las ejecuciones de condenados a muerte, lo que desencadenó críticas de la Unión Europea y grupos como Amnistía Internacional.
Aún quedan 40 condenados a muerte en las prisiones taiwanesas, según datos oficiales. Las última aplicación de la pena de muerte en Taiwán tuvo lugar el 30 de abril de 2010, con la ejecución de cuatro condenados



Taiwan executes 5 murderers

TAIPEI, Taiwan - The Justice Ministry says Taiwan has executed five murderers, the island's second use of the death penalty in a year.
A ministry statement says the executions were carried out late Friday, just hours after minister Tseng Yung-fu signed death warrants.
The statement says Guang Chung-yen, Wang Kuo-hua, Chung Teh-shu, Wang Chih-huang and Chuang Tien-chu were executed for committing «grave offenses that deprived victims of their lives.» The statement did not specify the method of execution used. Criminals in Taiwan who are sentenced to death are usually killed with a bullet to the head.
The last executions in Taiwan were April 30, 2010, when four men were put to death. Those executions were the first in five years.
