1. Kris Maharaj

Krishna ‘Kris’ Maharaj was sentenced to death in 1987 for two murders he didn’t commit.

In 2002, Reprieve’s work on his case led to a reduction in his sentence to life imprisonment. He would be eligible for parole aged 101. For Kris, “life” is a death sentence in all but name.

On 4th April 2017, Kris was granted a new hearing where new evidence of his innocence can finally be presented before the courts. We continue to work on Kris’s case ahead of the new hearing with hope that we can finally prove his innocent and end this injustice.
