Signed, of course. How is it possible to say that murder is wrong so we're going to murder you?

This petition is VERY important, because in Belarus the use of the death penalty is compounded by a flawed criminal justice system that administers capital punishment in a manner that violates international laws and standards pertaining to the death penalty. There is credible evidence that torture and ill-treatment are used to extract “confessions”; condemned prisoners may not have access to effective appeal mechanisms; and the inherently cruel, inhuman and degrading nature of the death penalty is compounded for death row prisoners and their relatives by the secrecy surrounding the death penalty. Neither prisoners nor their families are told the execution date in advance and prisoners must live with the fear that every time their cell door opens they may be taken for execution.

I know that life in Belarus better than in Russia. There are more order lawfulness, and there aren't corruption. Maybe use the death penalty have been conducing to it?

Using Death Penalty that way can conduct only to inhuman and cruel standards! Nothing really good nor civilised....
