Human rights is but one of the many type of rights

This is from the article, The penalty of death, in the Jamaica Gleaner about high murder rate by Robert Buddan.

... The United Nations introduced a resolution for a worldwide moratorium on the death penalty in December 2007. One hundred and four countries supported the resolution, with 54 voting against and 29 abstaining.


Singapore, a country which many admire for its tough discipline, say that its opposition to the death penalty was on grounds of criminal justice and was not seen as a human rights issue the way it is in Europe. This is how the Caribbean sees it as well.
