USA: Commute Death Sentence of Jeffrey Borden - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, USA, October 4, 2017

The State of Alabama has asked the US Supreme Court to lift a stay of execution granted to Jeffrey Borden, and to be allowed to execute him before midnight on 5 October. While the stay relates to a challenge to the state’s lethal injection protocol, Jeffrey Borden is said by his lawyers to have a severe mental disability and to be “actively psychotic”.
