From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Capital punishment in Tajikistan is allowed by Article 18 of the 1999 Constitution, where it is described as punishment for "particularly serious crimes".

The full wording of Article 18 in English translation:[1]

Every person has the right to life. No person may be deprived of life except by the verdict of a court for a very serious crime.

In Russian:[2]

Каждый имеет право на жизнь. Никто не может быть лишен жизни, кроме как по приговору суда за особо тяжкое преступление.

Tajikistan is not signatory to the Second Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, aiming at the abolition of the death penalty.[3]
