According to a 2013 report from Amnesty International, “China once again executed more people than the rest of the world put together.” The precise figures remain difficult to verify due to such information being deemed a state secret by China’s regime, although the human rights organization has determined that “monitoring continued to indicate death sentences in the thousands.” Source: Amnesty 2013 Report

Prisoners on China’s ‘death-row’, often denied a fair legal process and subject to draconian and state controlled legal system suffer a range of abuse that violate a number of international treaties. Such injustices and violations have a long record in China, a report from British newspaper The Independent in March 24 2009 recorded that: “Chinese prisoners on death row are handcuffed with their feet shackled despite the prohibition under international prison standards on leg-irons and chains as instruments of restraint. Chinese lawyers also report that defendants on capital crime charges are normally brought to interviews at the detention centre in chains”.
Meanwhile in a grisly reminder of Nazi-Germany’s industrialized killing machine, China now employs a fleet of mobile execution chambers, where prisoners are killed with a lethal cocktail of poisons.
