On May 10, Australian Scott Rush’s death sentence was repealed and
Scott was sentenced to life imprisonment while the death sentences of
Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran were upheld. Although the news
of Scott repealed death sentence is a minor triumph for human rights, the
death penalty remains a haunting reality for others of the Bali Nine and
for the global community.
It is with this sentiment in mind that AACP and ALHR warmly invite you to
this year’s dinner in commemoration of the 9th World Day Against the
Death Penalty, this year themed “The Inhumanity of the Death Penalty”.
The Day is recognised globally as a reminder of the inhumanity of the
death penalty throughout the entire process, from sentence to execution.
We are delighted to announce that our guest speakers include Julian
Burnside QC and Lee and Christine Rush, with Stephen Keim SC as
We hope you can join us to mark this important human rights event.
