Appeals urgently to Governments, UN bodies, the specialized agencies, regional intergovernmental organizations and non-governmental organizations to take effective action to combat and eliminate summary or arbitrary executions, including extra-legal executions; urges all Governments, in particular those which have consistently not responded to communications transmitted to them by the Special Rapporteur, and all others concerned, to co-operate with and assist the Special Rapporteur so that he may carry out his mandate effectively; requests the Special Rapporteur, in carrying out his mandate, to respond effectively to information that comes before him, in particular when a summary or arbitrary execution is imminent or threatened, or when such an execution has recently occurred; invites Governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to support the efforts made in UN forums towards the adoption of an international instrument that would incorporate international standards for proper investigation of all cases of death in suspicious circumstances, including provision for adequate autopsy.
