The Death Sentence in China

“At the Law School in Peking University, the delegation learnt from Vice Dean Xixin Wang that normally the death sentence, awarded by a lower court and confirmed by the Supreme People’s Court, would be executed within six weeks. If for some reasons, it could not be executed within this period due to pendency of the pardon application, the two-year limitation would come into operation.”
