About abolition of the death penalty in Turkmenistan

Independent neutral Turkmenistan enters the 21st century "gold" century of the Turkmen people with great and historical transformations in economic, political and cultural life of society and state.

The modern national model of the Turkmen state is based on national traditions of philanthrophy and justice, the great philosophical and humanistic ideas of our ancestors inherent in the Turkmen people.

Proceeding from moral ideals of our people and the universally recognized norms of international law, Turkmenistan recognized the person by the supreme value of society and state. Ensuring all completeness of human rights and freedoms constitutes core of state policy in Turkmenistan. The state all available means guarantees to the people and each person political, social, economic and spiritual freedom, their social security.

Strengthening of the Turkmen state, political stability in the country, the civil world, traditions of respect for the law, the high level of development of legal and spiritual culture of the people, strong confidence in happy life in "gold" century create premises for consolidation of humanity in the state criminal legal policy and adoptions of the decision, unprecedented in the history of the Asian region, on prohibition of capital punishment in Turkmenistan.

Consistently realizing rate on further democratization of the state and public life, being guided by the fact that the person and his life are the supreme value of society, proceeding from high ideals of good, justice and humanity, and for the purpose of practical realization of natural and inaliennable human right on life I decide:

1. Abolish the death penalty in Turkmenistan.

2. Forever to prohibit introduction and application of capital punishment in Turkmenistan.


President of Turkmenistan
