Why does China execute more people than all other countries combined?Submitted by donvino on Sat, 10/12/2013 - 08:25
China has 55 offenses that give the death penalty. The most in the world.
It is estimated that about 3000 people were executed last year. Official numbers are State secrets so a more accurate number is difficult to attain.
Executions are down from about 15000 from a decade ago on the positive side.
Perhaps all those people who visit there can help answer this? As for me I cannot visit such a country for moral and ethical reasons.
