Growing Disbelief

I would like to join your support group.

I am a university lecturer with an academic interest in the working of the criminal justice system, and find the whole issue of Penry-Davey J deeply disturbing. I also saw the Trail of Guilt programme and was actually struck by the improbability of the police case.

I would like to support you in any way that I can.

Just a mail to continue to offer my support for the Siôn Jenkins campaign. The evidence about one of the appeal judges being involved with the school and not declaring it was shocking. This is why the British Justice system is failing so many people.

I think that you guys are doing a great job in sending out all the mail, updating the Website, and campaigning so tirelessly, and thank you for that.

Here’s to justice.

Once again the Court of Appeal prefers to keep an innocent man locked up than to admit the legal system got it wrong again.

Have they learned nothing from the Birmingham 6?

At the time of Siôn Jenkins’ conviction I was surprised by the verdict but assumed that some of the evidence had not been reported or that I had missed something.

I watched the BBC program recently specifically to reassure myself that the British justice system was not so flawed that it would convict a man of murder on such slight evidence.

I was not reassured at all — the program horrified me. The attitude of the police involved, and the arrogance of the forensic scientists were very scary indeed.

I now know one thing for certain — that he is NOT ‘guilty beyond reasonable doubt’ of murder.

Keep up the fight for justice — it is important for us all.

Have always believed Mr. Jenkins to be innocent. Please convey my best wishes.

Good luck with the campaign.

I am aware and seriously concerned at the ability of the media, politicians and legal establishment to accept investigations by the Police as fully conclusive. The simple facts are the Police make many errors of judgement and outright mistakes due in part because of their lack of experience in other walks of life.

Their answer to this is to employ “expert” witnesses who, due to their professional status, are ill equipped to admit possible inconsistencies in their evidence under cross examination.This trait is extremely common especially in people of high academic standing for whom to lose face would be unthinkable. Unfortunately Judges and juries invariably accept their word.

Over time, public disbelief has continued to grow, and people have pledged active support.

I know that there is nothing practical that I can do to help you ( if there is I would like to know) but I felt compelled to just let you know that I am trying to raise awareness of his case and present the facts — the real facts, not the media ‘facts’.

I know the power of the mass media and I am always dismayed when I find that once more, journalistic and moral integrity have been swept aside and damaging untruths continue to jeopardise everything that he is striving for. If there is anything at all that I can help you with, please let me know.

Like many, I was, and remain, convinced that the guilty verdict on Mr Jenkins was a miscarriage of justice.

A recent, minor event in my life reminded me of Siôn’s continuing imprisonment and I found your website whilst searching for info on his case.

Is there anything I can do to help? I have excellent communication skills (I trained as a journalist many years ago) and am keen to help your cause. Please let me know if you could do with some assistance.

I wish your campaign well and hope that Mr Jenkins remains strong and positive. It appears that innocent people must suffer because those in power are reluctant to accept or acknowledge the flaws in our justice system. Until flaws are addressed, improvements cannot be made. Keep fighting and have faith that justice will be done.

I can’t understand why the police didn’t investigate further the evidence of someone lurking around the premises at the time of the murder and the man running down the passageway at the back of the house!! Was it because, I wonder, this was the easy option for them, heaven for bid it could happen to any of us!!

Although I have never met Siôn or his family I do feel that the police had ‘stitched’ Siôn up with the murder just to get the case cleared up. I do hope and pray that the evidence needed to release him from prison will turn up very soon and he can continue his life as a free man.

Yours very concerned
