Amnesty: ‘Disturbing’ Rise in Executions Worldwide in 2015

1 Share
More people were put to death in countries around the world last year than in any other year during the past quarter-century, Amnesty International said Tuesday. The report said at least 1,634 people were executed in 2015, a rise of 54 percent from the year before and the highest number the human rights watchdog has recorded since 1989. Executions were carried out in 25 countries, but just three – Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan  — accounted for 90 percent of all recorded executions. Pakistan ends moratorium In Pakistan, the December 2014 Taliban attack on a school in Peshawar that killed 141 people led the government to end its moratorium on executions. “Initially the moratorium was meant to be lifted only for terrorism-related crimes,” said Chiara Sangiorgio, death penalty researcher at Amnesty International. “But very soon, we saw persons being sent to the gallows for murder or other ordinary crimes, often on the basis of trials that leave a lot of doubts about the safety of the conviction.” Amnesty said at least 158 people were executed in Saudi Arabia, a predominantly Sunni country. Among those executed was Shi’ite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. Riyadh said it uses the death penalty against terrorists, but Amnesty claims it is often used against political dissidents. Drug offenses In Iran, many executions were carried out for drug-related offenses. “A significant proportion of the 977 executions that we recorded for Iran were carried out for drug-related offenses – even if international law clearly states that the use of the death penalty should be restricted to intentional killing,” Sangiorgio said. Iran is one of the last countries to execute child offenders, in violation of international law. Last year, it executed at least four people who were under 18 at the time of their crimes, the report said. However, the true number of people executed globally is likely much higher, because China is excluded from Amnesty’s data, she added. “This figure does not include the thousands of people that we believe were executed in China last year, where the use of the death penalty and the figures in particular in relation to the use of the death penalty remain classified as a state secret,” she said. Belarus, the only European country to use the death penalty, and Vietnam also do not provide data. US executions The U.S., the only country in the Americas to use capital punishment, was fifth on the Amnesty list of the most executions carried out in 2015. There were 28 executions in six U.S. states – the southern state of Texas accounted for almost half the total. America “recorded the lowest number of executions since 1991. And also the lowest number of sentences imposed since the death penalty was reintroduced in the United States in 1977,” Sangiorgio said. Amnesty Secretary General Salil Shetty said, “Thankfully, countries that execute belong to a small and increasingly isolated minority.” For the first time, a majority of the world’s countries — 102 — have now fully abolished the death penalty. Four countries adopted the ban in 2015: Fiji, Madagascar, the Republic of Congo and Suriname.

The Panama Papers in Russia

1 Share

MOSCOW—After a community of investigative journalists uncovered documents appearing to show that scores of world leaders and public officials could be engaged in money laundering, tax avoidance, and various forms of financial wrongdoing, the disclosures were splashed liberally on front pages around the world.

But in Russia, coverage was spottier.

Reporting by the International Committee of International Journalists (ICIJ) in Russia’s newspapers and online media that close associates of President Vladimir Putin hid money offshore appeared to be divided along political lines, with the clutch of liberal-minded independent outlets giving the findings generous coverage.

Initially Russian television stations, which set the news agenda across the country’s 11 time zones, entirely skipped the so-called Panama Papers, leading instead with revelations of a doping scandal—in London.

State-run Rossia 1 and First Channel, and private stations REN-TV and NTV, failed to mention any aspect of the report in lengthy morning-news programming on April 4. Their segments led with news of a fire in Tomsk, the Syria crisis, and the migrant crisis in the European Union.

The stations meted out special attention to a doping scandal in London exposed by the Sunday Times on April 3 in which a private British doctor said he prescribed performance-enhancing drugs to 150 athletes from Britain and abroad.

Vesti TV station did mention the ICIJ report in a news story on its website in the middle of the night—but only in relation to allegations that soccer legends Lionel Messi and Michel Platini were implicated. Apart from a follow-up on Messi and Platini, Vesti next mentioned the ICIJ scandal online only after the Kremlin reacted.

Commenting on the report more than 16 hours after the news broke, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov lashed out about “Putinophobia,” claiming the ICIJ staff comprises “many former representatives of the [U.S.] State Department, and the CIA, and other special services.”

The ICIJ investigation linked 140 leaders and public officials—including Western-backed Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko—to offshore dealings, but Peskov was quoted by Vesti as saying the attack was all about the West dealing a blow to Russia’s head of state: “Although Putin does not figure factually, and although other countries and other leaders are referred to, and so on, for us, it is of course obvious that the main target of these leaks was and remains our president, especially in the context of future parliamentary elections, and in the context of the long-term prospects.”

Once Peskov had commented, media organizations that had ignored the revelations began their coverage. They included newspapers like mass-circulation, pro-Kremlin tabloid Izvestia, which eventually gave Peskov’s comments condemning “Putinophobia” top billing. The Lifenews tabloid website adopted a similar approach.

The tone of their coverage contrasted starkly with coverage in liberal, opposition-minded outlets like radio station Ekho Moskvy, cable television station Dozhd, or investigative newspaper Novaya Gazeta. Influential business titles like Kommersant, Vedomosti, and RBK covered aspects of the allegations.

English-language broadcaster RT, formerly known as Russia Today, accused Western media of deliberately focusing on Putin and Russia despite the naming of British Prime Minister David Cameron’s father in the ICIJ report.

RT led with the sentence: “Sections of the British public have slammed their local media outlets for ignoring the fact Prime Minister David Cameron’s father was caught up in a massive data leak involving possible tax evasion.”

Cameron’s father died in 2010.
