In the draft resolution, pargraph 11.12, delete the following words:

"to resolutely renounce any attempts to reintroduce the death penalty in Turkey as incompatible with its international obligations;"

Explanatory note

There is no attempt to introduce the death penalty in Turkey, nor are there any discussions on this issue, as post-monitoring co-rapporteurs and the ad hoc committee of the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy have remarked. The resolution should therefore be updated.
