Death to Death Row in Belize (2016)

Less than twenty years ago Belize carried the mandatory death penalty for murder. Today, death row is empty and the gallows in the only prison have fallen into disrepair.

This short video from the BBC World Service follows our work in Belize, and looks at how our legal victories there have helped save lives across the globe.

This video clip accompanied the radio programme Assignment: Sparing the killers of Belize, aired on the BBC world Service on 30 June 2016.
