Reprieve is delighted by the news that Kenny Richey, a Scot who has been on Ohio’s death row for more than 20 years, has had his conviction overturned on appeal. The appeal was decided by the United States Court of Appeal for the Sixth Circuit, the second highest court that can hear the case.
Reprieve are delighted to announce that within the last 24 hours Ahmed Errachidi has been reunited with his family after being held prisoner in Guantanamo Bay for over five years. He was released last Thursday and transferred to Morocco where he was held in police custody before appearing before a judge this Wednesday. All charges against him were dropped and he was released and reunited with his family.
