Capital punishment is not applied in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. Venezuela was the first country in the world to abolish the death penalty for all crimes, by Constitution, in 1863. (San Marino had abolished the death penalty for ordinary crimes only in 1848.) Costa Rica followed suit in 1877, making Venezuela one of just three countries to have abolished the death penalty by 1900.[1] [2] [3]
