From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The last execution of a civilian carried out in Albania was a hanging on 29 June 1995. While capital punishment was abolished for murder on 1 October 2000, it was still retained for treason and military offences. The reason for the abolition of the death penalty in Albania as well as in other European nations is the signing of Protocol No. 6 to the ECHR. In Albania this came into force on 1 October 2000.

In 2007 Albania ratified Protocol No. 13 to the ECHR, abolishing the death penalty under all circumstances.
