Belarus amends Criminal Code
11:24, 27/10/2005

A provision has been added to the Belarus Criminal Code. The amendment states that the death penalty is introduced in the country temporarily. The House of Representatives of the National Assembly approved on Wednesday the corresponding amendments proposed by Alexander Lukashenko, an Interfax correspondent reports.

Lukashenko proposed the amendments at the end of June, the presidential press service reported.

"The Criminal Code is supplemented by a provision stating that the introduction of the death penalty is temporary. The death penalty may be applied in Belarus until it is cancelled as an exceptional form of punishment for particularly grave crimes, such as premeditated murder in aggravating circumstances," the press service said.
