A Foreign Office spokesperson said:

"We have learned today with regret that Taiwan has carried out five further executions. This follows instances of multiple executions carried out in previous years. The UK is disappointed that Taiwan has not followed its declared intention to progress towards abolition, and to elevate its human rights policies to international standards. We oppose the use of the death penalty in all circumstances, and we continue to urge our partners all over the world to join what is a clear global trend towards abolition."
