Malawi Mitigation Investigation Guide

The High Court of Malawi struck down the mandatory death penalty in 2007. In 2013, the Malawi Human Rights Commission created a resentencing project to give prisoners who had been mandatorily sentenced to death an opportunity to present their mitigating evidence. This guide helps paralegals and lawyers conduct effective mitigation investigation and community sensitization in the context of resentencing hearings triggered by the abolition of the mandatory death penalty.
