United Kingdom Warned that Aid to Vietnam Inadvertently Supports Death Penalty

Online Article Here, The Guardian

  "The UNODC strategy, while risky from a human rights perspective, fails to include any international human rights law within its legal framework. It contains no human rights risk assessment. This again raises the concern that UN programmes are assisting in operations that lead to the death penalty for those prosecuted, with no accountability mechanisms in place to ensure this is prevented and to react decisively when it occurs."
Previous Warnings

"Assistance to drug control efforts in countries with draconian drug laws, secret trials with no appeal, and death sentences for possession of small amounts of drugs raises serious concerns about complicity in violations of the right to life."
