(CNN) More than 1 million people have signed an online petition calling for the death penalty “to be abolished in the UK,” according to Open Britain , a campaign group.
Open Britain was launched in May after the death penalty was reintroduced to the UK’s criminal justice system.
The petition was created by the group to get the government to review the use of capital punishment but it is now pushing for other measures.
“We have called for the death penalty to be abolished, but I am not sure we’ll get it,” said Open Britain’s executive director, Caroline Lucas.
Open Britain wants the government to adopt the international human rights platform the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights known as the ICCPR.
The United Kingdom currently uses the death penalty for crimes such as murder and rape as part of a broader approach to dealing with serious crimes including drug-related offences. It has also recently passed a law bringing in the UK’s first death by fire, in which firefighters and those injured as a result were allowed to file claims. The law was hailed as “a watershed moment” for the country.
There had already been push to introduce other measures aimed at reducing the number of people facing the death penalty.
The law to bring in the new law also came in response to calls for the death penalty to be abolished. But the legislation was tabled following opposition to it during a debate in parliament over issues such as public funding, the cost of the death penalty and the issue of mental states that contribute to sentencing.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice said: “Any change to the law will be carefully considered by MPs, the Law Reform Commission and the judiciary, before the Bill is tabled for a parliamentary vote.”
One of the measures highlighted by the Open Britain campaign is the introduction of a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of release.
The group also wants the government to abolish the death penalty for rape, incest and those convicted of child abuse.
Another petition is called “End all capital punishment for anyone except serious offenders and serious violent criminals”.
More than 8,000 people have signed the petition.
Lucas told CNN: “The most disturbing thing about this is we’re saying that the death penalty should be abolished, but if we don’t get it done, we will
