Reprieve’s Legal Director Clive Stafford Smith on how western governments should practise what they preach, especially when it comes to detention without trial.
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. Nick Yarris spent 8,057 days on Pennsylvania’s death row before being exonerated and released in 2004. He now lives in the UK and supports Reprieve’s work by giving talks about his experiences.
