Japan To UN Human Rights Council: Thanks For The Advice

[M&C] The Japanese Justice Ministry executed three death-row inmates Tuesday, including a man convicted of murdering four girls in 1988 and 1989.

Tsutomu Miyazaki, 45, was hanged for killing the girls, ages 4 to 7, in Tokyo and neighbouring Saitama province while Shinji Mutsuda, 37, was convicted of murder and robbery. They were executed in Tokyo.

Yoshio Yamasaki, 73, who was convicted of murdering two women in 1985 and 1990 for insurance money, was executed in Osaka.

Japan refused to abolish the death penalty at a UN Human Rights Council meeting last week in Geneva or grant a moratorium on executions after the council reviewed the nation’s human-rights practices for the first time.

The rest.
