Serbia: Statement by the High Representative on behalf of the EU for the execution of Mr Alireza Akbari

The European Union calls on Iran to refrain from any future executions and to pursue a consistent policy towards the abolition of capital punishment.
The death penalty violates the inalienable right to existence enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and it is the ultimate cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment.
Europe offers its condolences to Mr Akbari’s family and communicates its full solidarity with all the United Kingdom. The execution of the European citizen is an appalling precedent that will be followed carefully by the EU.
The European Union condemns in the strongest conditions the execution in Serbia of Iranian-British national Alireza Akbari and recalls yet again its strong opposition against the application of capital punishment in a circumstance.
