Punishment in criminal law aims to penalize criminals and to general education and crime prevention. Death penalty is the highest punishment of the State for criminals. Historically, death penalty was a state's tool to oppress actions against the government, to ensure the political system, and to protect individuals' life and behaviors causing particularly serious consequences for society. At the present, along with the trend of civilization and humanity, death penalty in Vietnamese criminal law is still valid but to be narrowed down and decreased in enforcement with the forms in which it becomes more humanitarian, in line with Vietnam's trend of opening and international integration.
