One death sentence was given in 2004  and three people were executed in 2007.
In 2003, at least 22 people were reported to be on death row in Equatorial Guinea.  We do not know how this is applied in modern-day Equatorial Guinea.
The 1963 Spanish Penal Code stipulates that such offenders shall be placed in an institution for the mentally ill.

Many of the Equatoguinean laws and decrees that are now in force date prior to its independence, “without any thorough assessment having been made to determine whether they are compatible with the current Constitution and the laws adopted since 1995.”  The Penal Code, Criminal Procedure Act and Code of Military Justice dating back to the Franco dictatorship “contain principles and standards incompatible with the 1995 Constitution and international instruments.”  .  Amnesty Intl., Execution of four men in Equatorial Guinea condemned, Aug. Human Rights Council, Promotion And Protection Of All Human Rights, Civil, Political, Economic, Social And Cultural Rights, Including The Right To Development, Report of the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, Addendum, Mission To Equatorial Guinea (8-13 July 2007), p.

During its review by the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review in 2009, the Equatoguinean delegation mentioned that “many of those condemned to capital punishment have been reprieved or had their sentences commuted” but it did not give specific information as of the number or the years.
 As of October 2010, we thus evaluate the number of individuals on death row to be around 20.  The four people sentenced to death on August 21, 2010 were executed the same day. However, the age of criminal responsibility is 16 years in Equatorial Guinea. Human Rights Council, Report of the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Manfred Nowak, Addendum, Mission to the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, p.  In addition, armed rebellion,  sedition,  and treason  are punishable by death. Various military offenses are punishable by death, including desertion,  negligent performance of duties,  rebellion,  insurrection,  insult to sentry, guard or armed force,  insubordination,  disobeying the orders of a superior,  and offenses against military honor. Leading a rebellion,  insurrection,  insult to sentry or guard,  insult to a superior,  disobeying the orders of a superior, and  offenses against military honor  are all punished by death under the 1945 Spanish Code of Military Justice. Equatorial Guinea is party to the ICCPR  and to the Convention on the Rights of the Child  , which prohibit the execution of individuals for crimes committed while under the age of 18.  Inducing a foreign power to declare war against “Spain” is also punishable by death (it is questionable how this provision would be applied in modern-day Equatorial Guinea). Armed robbery is punishable by death, if certain aggravating circumstances are present: when the offender intentionally raped or mutilated the victim, or when the victim was held as a hostage or for more than one day, or where the robbery was accompanied by an attempted kidnapping. Various crimes against the head of state are punishable by death, including murder and attempted murder, holding him against his will, forcing him to commit an act against his will under threat of intimidation, and causing him severe harm.
