La notion d'exécution extrajudiciaire au regard du droit international public

Abstract : An extra-judicial execution is the killing of a person by direct or indirect participation of governmental authorities without any judicial proceeding or legal process and against the international standards of human rights. Extrajudicial execution is by its nature unlawful since it bypasses the due process of the legal jurisdiction in which they occur and it violates human rights principles, especially the rights to life. Extrajudicial killings often target political opponents, human rights defenders, leading political and social figures and may be carried out by the state government or other state authorities like the armed forces and police. After the beginning of the "War on Terror" this crime has passed the borders and many people have been killed in the name of war against terrorism. This new generation of war has introduced new examples of extra-judicial execution. The international community has faced new violation of the right to life and there is a need to improve the protection of the people against these new examples.
