Therefore, Grenada’s highest court was ordered to redo the trials against the 13 people who were still in jail.
In 1986, 14 of “Grenada 17” were sentenced to death for having carried out the coup in 1983 which led to the assassinations of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and nine other government officials. The sentence was converted in 1991 to life imprisonment, and a prisoner was later released. The legal proceedings against the coup makers have received sharp criticism from, among other things, human organizations; Amnesty International has defined the 14 as prisoners of conscience (political prisoners).
