The trial is due to wrap up in the case of a Japanese man who has been dubbed the world’s longest-serving death row inmate. Iwao Hakamada, 88, is a former boxer who was sentenced to death by hanging after being convicted of killing four people in 1966. Hakamada was on death row for nearly half a century, until Japan’s High Court ordered a retrial, which got under way in October 2023.
