The culture of life against death penalty

 
printable version

"We collect and relaunch the appeal of Reyhaneh’s mother and we reiterate our total opposition to the death penalty: justice is done with the culture of life, not with the death penalty". It 's what has been stated to Adnkronos by the President of the Community of Sant'Egidio, Marco Impagliazzo, about the case of the young Iranian woman sentenced to death for the murder of the man who was raping her, whose mother, through Aki Adnkronos International, addressed an appeal to the Italian mothers and politicians, to the Pope and the Vatican.

"The death penalty is always unacceptable – Impagliazzo reaffirms - because you can not believe in a justice system that takes the life of a person. Italy is also committed at the UN against the death penalty and for Iran, which seems to show signs of international openness. This could be a good opportunity to be seized, even at diplomatic level, as well as an act of justice in favour of the value of the human
life".
