BRUSSELS: Pakistan got relaxing news from European Union (EU) as spokesman for the western world said that they never stopped Pakistan on implementation on death sentences, Samaa News reported.
The EU spokesman said that Pakistan should implement its laws regarding death sentences.
The spokesman further said that China, Iran and Saudi Arabia were also implementing death sentences adding that the EU never imposed any ban on these countries.
From 2008 Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) led government always cited the reason that EU has threatened Pakistan not to implement on death executions. After PPP government, existing Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) also did not implement on death sentences citing the same reasons.
After barbaric attack on Army Public School in Peshawar the government compelled to end moratorium on death sentences.
It is pertinent to mention here that the government has executed seven high profile terrorists so far after ending moratorium on death sentences.
