On the eve of World Day Against the Death Penalty, Amnesty International has welcomed President Álvaro Colom's public commitment to veto proposed legislation that would lead to the reapplication of the death penalty.
 
The Guatemalan Congress had voted on 5 October 2010 to approve legislation that would have allowed the use of the death penalty. However, President Colom has since said he would veto the move because he does not think the president should decide on the life of others.
