The Foreign Ministry follows the case of Noura Hussein

The Foreign Ministry, through the Italian Embassy in Khartoum, is following with constant and careful attention the case of Noura Hussein, the young Sudanese woman who is sentenced to death. Capital punishment is unjustified in any circumstance.

Italy is in the front line in the international campaign to promote a moratorium on the death penalty and, based on an approach of inclusiveness, intends to foster a domestic debate in the Countries that still apply capital punishment, in order to give impulse to a process to fall in line with the moratorium on the death penalty in the prospect of abolishing it.

Italy also reaffirms its commitment to combat abuse on women, which materializes in practices such as female genital mutilation and child brides.
