International partners* are deeply concerned about the executions that took place on September 6th in Somaliland. We oppose capital punishment at all times and under all circumstances.

The death penalty is incompatible with human dignity. It has no deterrent effect on crime. Our partnership with Somaliland is one built on respect for human rights.
