Encyclopedia > Execution warrant

An execution warrant is a warrant which authorizes the execution or capital punishment of an individual. An execution warrant is typically issued by an executive officer rather than by a judicial officer only in a dictatorship or totalitarian regimes.


Judges issue execution warrants when they sentence a person to death after their trial and conviction. This protects the executioner from being charged with murder.

Execution (legal) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (296 words)
Execution is the killing of a convicted criminal as a deliberate legalact.
Execution can be legal, if preceded by a judicial process or in accordance with appropriate law (see capital punishment), or illegal, such as killing of hostages.
Formal military executions are typically by firing squad (for violations of orders in wartime or the laws of war) or by hanging (typically for cowardice, or commission of atrocities or other crimes).
