Dharamshala: The Mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno on
Tuesday appealed to the Italian Government for a
strong condemnation of Chinese authorities
practice of death penalty, Italian ANSA news agency reported.

Mayor Gianni Alemanno emphasised that this appeal
represents widespread sentiment of Italians, who
are always very sensitive on the issue of respect
of the human rights and civil liberty.

We have learned with profound regret the news
from the Representative of the Dalai Lama about
the execution of four very young Tibetans,
sentenced last April for their participation in
the mass protest of the 20 October (March) 2008 in the city of Lhasa.

Italy is always in the frontline in promoting at
the Commission of UNO for human rights for a
moratorium on the death penalty in the prospect
of it's complete abolition, said the Mayor of Rome.

He concluded by saying that within the constant
and constructive dialogue that our government
engages with Beijing, the Italian expectation for
a just and specific solution to the Tibetan issue
be underscored within the frame work of
territorial integrity and sovereignty of China.
