China executes two hundred people in last 2 weeks

China executes two hundred people in last 2 weeks

China rushed through 200 executions in the past two weeks in advance of the lunar new year.

In December and January the number of excutions reported in local media topped 650, although that number could be much higher as China does not release details of all executions.

"There is a huge gap between policy and practice with regard to the death penalty in China," said Catherine Baber, Deputy Asia Director at Amnesty International. "While the government claims that the death penalty is applied cautiously, the ritual peak in executions we’re witnessing at the moment completely undermines any pretence of ‘caution’."
