Moldova abolished the death penalty completely, radio station Echo of Moscow informs. The law was adopted recently by the country’s parliament and today it was signed by President Vladimir Voronin. Thus Moldova joins the 13th protocol of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and is obliged to abstain from implementing the death penalty in any case. Up to now the law in Moldova allowed the passing and execution of death sentences in special cases at wartime, the radio station reminds.
