Since the reintrothal of the death penalty at the federal level in 1988, only three people have been executed.  One of them was Juan Raul Garza, whose case attracted international attention when he was sentenced to death in 2001, when the Inter-American Commission had declared that Garza`s rights had been violated by the introduction of non-drug offenses that occur in Mexico during the prison period.  Garza`s case is a clear example of concerns about the death penalty at the federal level, including “concerns about the ordinary procedure, the discriminatory application of this sentence, the length of detention on death row (the so-called death row phenomenon), and the methods of execution.”  The pioneering decision of the European Court of Human Rights in Söring v. the United Kingdom is a perfect example. Lord. Söing, a German national, was imprisoned in England until extradition to the United States to stop in the Commonwealth of Virginia for murder , where he could have been sentenced to death.  Under the extradition treaty with the United States, the British Foreign Secretary would normally request, on behalf of the United Kingdom, that the United States not impose or apply the death penalty.  Despite this usual practice, the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the United Kingdom would violate the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms by extradicing Söering to the United States.  Sering was only extradited after the relevant authorities agreed not to apply the death penalty; He was eventually sentenced and sentenced to life in prison.
 While “limiting to the most serious crimes” is a strong principle of international law, the term has no general definition and conformity. The UN General Assembly has approved a number of protective measures ensuring the protection of the rights of those facing the death penalty, which provide that the “most serious crimes” apply only to international crimes with lethal or other extremely serious consequences. The UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions has also stated that the death penalty for economic crimes, drug-related offences, crimes without victims and acts related to moral values such as adultery, prostitution and sexual orientation should be abolished. . . .
