About Reprieve

Reprieve is an organization of courageous and committed human rights defenders. Founded by British human rights lawyer Clive Stafford Smith, it provides free legal and investigative support to some of the world’s most vulnerable people: those facing execution, and those victimized by states’ abusive counter-terror policies – rendition, torture, extrajudicial imprisonment and extrajudicial killing. Reprieve’s lawyers and investigators are supported by a community of people from all around the world, connected by a belief in human rights and justice. Together, they fight for the victims of extreme human rights abuses with a combination of public pressure and legal action.
