President Cyril Ramaphosa expresses condolences on passing of Human Rights Champion George Bizos

Adv Bizos served as legal counsel to Nelson Mandela for many years and was among the panel of lawyers who represented defendants in the Rivonia Trial. He was acknowledged globally as a campaigner for human rights who defied and exposed the apartheid state through its own legal system and shielded citizens from injustice and harassment by the state.
