HARGESIA (SD) -Somaliland recently executed four soldiers who were previously convicted of murder charges.
Lizzie Walker, the Head of the British Office Hargeisa, issued a statement condemning the order of execution of the Somaliland soldiers.
The Head of British Office in Hargeisa expressed deep concern over the execution, and said the British government was opposed to the death penalty in retaliation, contending that the death penalty was an barbarity to one’s dignity.
We are deeply concerned about the executions that took place this morning in Somaliland. 🇬🇧 position is well known: 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.” said Walker.
The British government and other European partners, often rebuke all execution sentences, carried out by both Somaliland and the Federal Government of Somalia.
