Peter Knox QC assists Pro Bono in CCJ Appeal

19 October 2018

Peter Knox QC provided pro bono legal assistance to The Death Penalty Project  in proceedings before the Caribbean Court of Justice acting for Japhet Bennett who was serving a life sentence in Belize. Japhet was 17 years old when he was arrested on suspicion of murder almost a decade ago. The evidence against him at trial was so week the CCJ ruled that it was too unsafe to have allowed the jury to deliver a verdict.

Today Japhet Bennet walked free after his murder conviction was overturned.
