The number of executions is a state secret, and the executions reported in the media [1] are a tiny fraction of those that are carried out. Human rights organizations estimate that China carries out thousands of executions a year, more than the rest of the world together. [2]

Executions in 2016

Given the secrecy surrounding executions, exact numbers are difficult to obtain and different figures are provided by various organizations.

The Abdorrahman Boroumand Foundation reported 545 executions in 2016. [1] Another organization, Iran Human Rights, reported at least 530 executions in 2016. [2] Amnesty International reported at least 567 executions in 2016. [3] The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center tracked executions for the first half of 2016, reporting at least 259 executions in 2016 as of July 29, 114 of which were announced by the government. [4]

The actual number of executions is likely to be higher, given the government’s underreporting of executions and the holding of secret executions.

At least 64. [1]

Because of the secrecy surrounding capital punishment, we are not able to offer a reliable estimate. This is the number of executions reported in the media (which often obtain their information from South Korean sources), but media reports are not always accurate. Earlier this year, for instance, a South Korean news source reported the execution of army chief of staff Ri Gong Gil, but the report has since proved to be inaccurate. [2] In August 2016, South Korean media reported the public execution of two senior officials and the execution of a deputy premier of education. [3] In October, South Korean media reported there had been 64 public executions in the first nine months of 2016. [4]

The real execution figure is almost certainly much higher. According to data recently released by The Korean Institute for National Unification, which is funded by the South Korean government, an estimated 1,382 executions took place in public between 2000 and 2013. [5] Amnesty International has corroborated executions in North Korea in 2016, but had insufficient information to provide a credible minimum figure. [6]

Because of the secrecy surrounding capital punishment, we are not able to offer a reliable estimate. Nevertheless, a report from the Ministry of Public Security indicates that 429 prisoners were executed between August 2013 and July 2016. [1] We are unable to provide a breakdown of these executions by year. Amnesty International corroborated executions in Vietnam in 2016, but had insufficient information to provide a credible minimum figure. [2]
