    Ireland

    The Criminal Justice Act 1990 removed the death penalty for treason convictions, setting the punishment at life imprisonment, with parole in not less than forty years

    Not a reliable source but still gives an idea i could not find the act for the uk so i guess it's similar

    I bet most of those laws are lies. Sorry to be a killjoy! The internet is full of made up stuff...

    Notice how dumb laws never have citations.
