Amnesty International Disapproves Musharraf’s Death Sentence

The human rights organization, Amnesty International opposed the death sentence awarded to former President Pervez Musharraf in the high treason case on Wednesday.

The organization, however, stated that “Musharraf must face accountability for all crimes”.

Omar Warraich, the deputy director of Amnesty International’s for South Asia, said in a statement:

“The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhumane and degrading punishment; it metes out vengeance, not justice.”

“This includes extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture, arbitrary detentions, death in custody, unlawful killings and other serious human rights violations committed against the political opposition, human rights defenders, members of civil society and suspected members of armed groups,” the statement read.

He further said Pervez Musharraf and the government he led must be held accountable for all the human rights violations committed during their tenure of government.

“No one is above the law, it is encouraging to see Pakistan break with a history of impunity for powerful generals, ” he said.
