From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The last execution in Armenia took place on the 30 August 1991; it was carried out by a single bullet. Death penalty remained a legal punishment for murder, treason, and serious crimes of a military nature, until its abolition in 2003.

In 2003 Armenia also ratified the Protocol No. 6 to the European Convention on Human Rights (the Protocol allows countries to retain death penalty for serious wartime crimes)[1]. Protocol No. 13 (concerning abolition of the death penalty under all circumstances) was signed in 2006; however, as of January 2008 Armenia has not ratified it[2].
