Document: Oman CEDAW DP FINAL.pdf (PDF 309.5 KB)
Type: Intl Mechanism Submission
Issues: Death Penalty, Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
Report Type: List of Issues
This report suggests questions that the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women should pose to the government of Oman in its List of Issues, particularly with respect to the death penalty. While the Omani Government insists that it imposes the death penalty for only the "most serious crimes," Oman's 2018 Penal Code contains over 20 articles in which the death sentence is listed as punishment, and due to the Omani Government's practice of secrecy, no reliable information on death penalty practices in Oman is available.
