Malawi Capital Resentencing Project: Selected Jurisprudence

The High Court of Malawi struck down the mandatory death penalty in 2007. In 2013, the Malawi Human Rights Commission initiated a resentencing project to ensure that the affected prisoners have an opportunity to present mitigating evidence at a new sentencing hearing. This publication interprets thirty-three judgments from those hearings, interpreting the mitigating and aggravating evidence in each case.
