Subject: The European Parliament reiterates its condemnation of the use of the death penalty and strongly supports the introduction of a moratorium on the death penalty, as a step towards abolition; it emphasises once again that the abolition of the death penalty contributes to the enhancement of human dignity and that the EU’s ultimate aim is universal abolition. The Parliament condemns all executions wherever they take place, it continues to be deeply concerned regarding the imposition of the death penalty on minors and on persons with mental or intellectual disability, and it calls for an immediate and definitive end to such practices, which violate international human rights standards
