And see: European Aid for Executions: How European counternarcotics aid enables death sentences and executions in Iran and Pakistan (pdf): "UK taxpayers money has enabled as many as 2,917 brutal executions in Iran and more than 112 pending death sentences in Pakistan, a report from legal action charity Reprieve has shown. Many of the sentences have been handed down to women and children, as well as a number of British nationals.... The research confirms that over the last ten years Britain has given more money than any other European country to drug police in Iran and Pakistan; countries which aggressively pursue the death penalty for drug offences and boast the world's highest per capita execution rate (Iran) and the world's largest death row population (Pakistan)."
