 Why can't a mental patient be sentenced to death? The Supreme Court sought assistance

  • Why can't mental illness suspects be sentenced to death? The Supreme Court sought the advice of psychologists and lawyers.
  • Why can't mental illness suspects be sentenced to death? If the court proves that the accused were healthy at the time of the crime, does the sentence end? Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan made these remarks while hearing the appeals filed against the death sentence of mental patients in the Supreme Court.
  • Justice Manzoor Malik remarked that if the death sentence of mentally ill accused was abolished, where would they spend the rest of their sentences? There are two separate cases of illness before and after the crime. The mental condition of the accused named in the case was not observed at any level from the trial court to the Supreme Court. If the court does not cooperate, the accused will be hanged. Sentenced the accused to death and then filed a petition to determine whether the sentence was correct or incorrect.
  • Justice Mansoor Ali Shah said that if the condition of the accused improves after treatment, can they be sentenced to death? Even if the accused were treated, they would be serving life sentences. It is not possible to abolish the death sentence of the accused and send them elsewhere.
  • Further hearing of the case will be held on January 4.
