    Abstract

In the face of reducing the death penalty in the regulation of crimes, the retention of the regulation on the death penalty shows the extremely dangerous nature of this offense.

This article analyzes the provisions of the 2015 Penal Code (amended and supplemented in 2017) of Vietnam (with comparisons with previous regulations) on cases of rape of a person under 16 years old will be imposed a death sentence and the practice of applying it from the reality of Ho Chi Minh City in the period 2016-2020.
