Korean bishops join in call to abolish capital punishment

December 31, 2010

The Catholic bishops of Korea have joined in a call for the abolition of the death penalty.

Although South Korea has not carried out a death penalty since 1997, and the country is listed by Amnesty International as an “abolitionist in practice,” there are still 61 prisoners on death row, theoretically awaiting execution.
