Extracted from the obituary of Joel Joffe 20 June 2017 published in the Times of Israel: 
Tributes were paid Tuesday to Joel Joffe, the lawyer who defended Nelson Mandela in the trial that saw the anti-apartheid icon jailed, following his death at the age of 85. Lord Joffe died on Sunday, said Oxfam, the aid agency which he chaired. The Nelson Mandela Foundation said the human rights lawyer died in London.Joffe was a key part of Mandela’s defense team in the 1963-4 Rivonia Trial, which saw Mandela given a life sentence for sabotage against the apartheid South African state.
