Lockerbie, lies, deceit, dishonesty in the legal system and Lord Denning's shameful epitaph on Truth and Justice
The Herald today "This could open a can of worms for the entire Scottish justice system"
Can we ever forget Lord Denning, dismissing the Birmingham 6's 1980 civil action against the police, who said,
So what now for the forces of law and order in Scotland? Once the full facts of
the SCCRC's 800-page statement are known, those involved in the prosecution of
the case will undoubtedly come in for criticism for failing to secure a
conviction which could stand up to scrutiny.
Yesterday's report had been expected to level barbs in varying degrees at the trial judges, the Crown prosecutors, the police, and not least Megrahi's original defence team, but so far the reality of the SCCRC's public statement does not quite match
“If the six men win, it will mean that the police were guilty of perjury, that they were guilty of violence and threats, that the confessions were involuntary and were improperly admitted as evidence, and that the convictions were erroneous …. this is such an appalling vista that every sensible person in the country would say: it cannot be right these actions go any further.”
"We shouldn't have all these campaigns to get them released".
