"As a proud patron of this unique organisation, I urge you to support our most important appeal of the year.
Thanks to you, Reprieve’s lawyers and investigators have accomplished a great deal over the past twelve months. But there is a lot more to be done, and we urgently need your help to succeed. Thank you." Jon Snow, Reprieve patron.
On October 24th, 2012, 67-year-old Mammana Bibi was killed by a CIA drone as she picked vegetables in the field by her home. She was the only midwife in the village of Tappi, Pakistan where her entire family lived. Mammana’s granddaughters Nabeela (pictured) and Asma – who are nine years old and five years old, respectively – and her thirteen year old grandson Zubair, were playing nearby when the missile hit. Rafiq ur Rehman, Mammana’s son, was not at home at the time of the strike. Upon his return to the house he saw his mother being buried.
Reprieve is representing the family - along with a number of other civilian victims of drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen - in their attempts to secure legal redress, and ensure that the secret drone programme is opened up to scrutiny.
