Mothers Against Death Penalty
When Mothers Against the Death Penalty was created, in Uzbekistan, the death penalty was considered to be one of the strictest punishments and the Uzbek government refused to disclose the number of people sentenced to death every year.
Since 2007, the death penalty has been progressively abolished in the country. It was crucial to support the position of the human rights NGO Mothers Against the Death Penalty and Torture and its recommendation that the Uzbek government ratify the Second Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Uzbekistan ratified it in 2008) and abolish the death penalty.
To achieve this goals, Mothers Against the Death Penalty and Torture carried out work and actions among the Uzbek population around the issue of the death penalty.
