Death Sentence Of Troy Anthony Davis

EDM number 1236 in 2007-08, proposed by Alistair Carmichael on 19/03/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Administration of justice, Crime and North America.

That this House notes with concern the conviction of Troy Anthony Davis on a charge of murdering the police officer Mark MacPhail in Georgia in 1989; notes that Mr Davis is facing the death penalty in Georgia and that there are substantial concerns and questions being raised by campaigning organisations regarding the safety of his conviction; further notes that 127 individuals have been released from death rows across the United States due to wrongful conviction; and therefore urges the UK Government to make representations to the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles for a demonstration of its strong commitment to fairness and justice by commuting the death sentence of Troy Anthony Davis.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
