FPSS APPEAL AGAINST DEATH PENALTY

Foreign Prisoner Support Service are urging everyone to call upon His Excellency, the Honorable Alexander Downer, Minister of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade [DFAT] to lobby Indonesia for clemency for the Australians facing death by firing squad in Bali.

The Australian Government publicly opposes the death penalty and has agreed to support all applications for clemency from Australians on death row or those facing the death penalty.

The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights. It is a premeditated action of killing another human being. It violates that persons right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In opposing the death penalty, we mean no disrespect for the victims of violent crime and their relatives. We feel that there can never be any justification for torture or cruel treatment of another human being.

Please contact Minister Downer's office and voice your concerns!

The Hon Alexander Downer MP
Title: Minister for Foreign Affairs.
Party: Liberal Party of Australia
