South Africa: Mandela’s Comrade Continues Human Rights Work

George Bizos, a Greek-born lawyer, who defended Mandela during his 1960s trial, continues to work in the human rights world for the Legal Resources Centre. He currently is the executor of Mandela’s will. He said that Mandela’s legacy is hard to follow. "But I do believe that we should remind them constantly of what the leader that they praise stood for." (Photo: Denis Farrell/AP Photo, FILE)
