Death Penalty in Japan: Info Evening in Bochum in March 2016

The university group Amnesty International Bochum was the organizer of an info evening on the death penalty in Japan on March 22, 2016 – the event was repeated at a later date.

Invited speakers were Sina Vogt from the German Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty who informed in a first part about the death penalty in general and worldwide, and Renate Müller-Wollermann from Amnesty International with the focus on the death penalty in Japan.

Afterwards, the university group informed about the case of the Japanese Matsumoto Kenji, which they are specifically in charge of.

Details and pictures as well as the link to a petition for Matsumoto Kenji can be found in this report.
