USA: TWO MEN FACE EXECUTION IN SOUTH CAROLINA
10 June 2021, Index number: AMR 51/4259/2021
Two executions by electric chair in South Carolina have been set over seven days, starting on 18 June 2021. The scheduling of these executions follows the enactment of a law on 14 May that changes South Carolina’s death penalty, allowing for execution by electric chair or firing squad. These executions, if carried out, will end a 10-year hiatus in executions in South Carolina, and set the state against the US and global trends away from the death penalty. We demand for the Governor to call off the scheduled executions.
