According to Amnesty International,
“China was once again the world’s leading executioner; however, figures remained classified as state secret. The organization believes that − onceagain these figures continued to be in the thousands and that China remained the world’stop executioner, executing more people than the rest of the world combined.”

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.
