Good News! – USA: Richard Glossip Granted Stay of Execution (UA 192/15)
On 30 September the Governor of Oklahoma issued a 37-day stay of execution for Richard Glossip minutes before he was due to be killed, after the prison department revealed it did not have one of the drugs required for the lethal injection. The state Attorney General has now obtained indefinite stays of execution in this and two other cases.
