in 2004 the 13th protocol was adopted

An excerpt from Wikipidia following a conversation I had last night.  I just thought it was interesting.

The last execution on the Isle of Man took place in 1872, when John Kewish was hanged for patricide. Capital punishment was not formally abolished by Tynwald (the island's parliament) until 1993. 

Five persons were sentenced to death (for murder) on the Isle of Man between 1973 and 1992, although all sentences were commuted to life imprisonment.

The last person to be sentenced to death in the UK or its dependencies was Anthony Teare, who was convicted at the Manx Court of General Gaol Delivery in Douglas in 1992; he was subsequently retried and sentenced to life imprisonment in 1994.  In 2004 the 13th Protocol was adopted, with an effective date of 1 November 2006.
