Clive Stafford Smith has worked on behalf of defendants facing the death penalty in the southern United States for the last 25 years. He is currently focusing his work on achieving due process for the detainees being held in Guantanamo Bay.
In 1999, after years of support from the UK for his work, he established Reprieve, a UK-based charity that protects the human rights of those under threat of execution. In October 2000, he was awarded an OBE for ‘humanitarian services’.
