Tokyo’s High Court has ordered a retrial for Iwao Hakamada, an 87-year-old former professional boxer and the world’s longest-serving death row inmate. Hakamada’s lawyers argue his conviction was based on a forced confession and fabricated evidence.

The court agreed there was a possibility that key evidence, blood-stained clothing allegedly worn during the crime, was fabricated. Hakamada has been on death row for over five decades after the ex-boxer was convicted of murder in 1966.
