"There is a very serious problem with the British Justice System"
“This week saw the launch of our new writing campaign to the Home Affairs Select Committee in conjunction with Susan May and Eddie Gilfoyle. I think you will agree the tactics employed by the various MOJ departments to maintain our convictions are strikingly similar. In light of recent events surrounding the police officers trial after their involvement in the cases of Cardiff Three it is very obvious that there has been, and still is a very serious problem with the British Justice system - reported to be one of the best in the world. Let’s see if we can stimulate enough interest and write enough letters to bring about a re-assessment of the various departments that deliberately block, wrangle, refuse and gag innocent people from having the right to fight their wrongful convictions, in many cases preventing them from showing the public the levels of incompetence and corruption carried out by police to obtain and sustain a conviction.
Unsurprisingly I am still waiting for disclosure of evidence from the CCRC, we made submissions at the end of July for disclosure but have received no response to the request which was supported by the testimony of a forensic scientist as justification for seeing the evidence. It is then, no surprise that the CCRC have taken 7 years to get to this point with my case.
We also have another writing campaign coming up shortly and further forensic work continues as I approach my 27th Christmas in prison. There is still no news on the decision of the ECHR on my appeal against the whole life tariff. As a result of “Crimes the Shook Britain” being aired in the UK again I’ve received many more emails and letters from new supporters offering various types of help for the campaign. I’ve already started receiving Christmas cards from friends and kind messages keep me going to my long awaited freedom.”

We have had some emails asking what people are allowed to send to Jeremy as Christmas presents. Prison regulation prohibits anything to be sent apart from stationery or photographs. Jeremy always needs good quality A4 ruled pads, envelopes of any size, and stamps both large and small. Please keep gifts within these guidelines and they will reach Jeremy.
Thank you for your support.
