Title: Wrongly Accused Person Org drop the Luke Mitchell case.
Post by: John on July 22, 2014, 04:24:58 AM
As predicted, the Wrongly Accused Person Organisation and Forum jointly run by Billy Middleton and Sandra Lean have removed the Luke Mitchell boards from their forum.  This follows the decision by the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission not to refer the case to the Appeal Court.

A stalwart supporter for over ten years, Sandra Lean has now withdrawn completely from the case. The Power of Attorney previously granted which enabled her to act on Luke Mitchell's behalf has now been revoked.  Sandra Lean has refused to disclose the reason for the split citing personal reasons.

Wrongly accused person org appears to be no more




"Sandra Lean Joins Billy Middleton as Partner of Wrongly Accused People site.
Sandra's extensive knowledge has been gathered over several years resulting in the book "No Smoke, The Shocking Truth About The British Justice System" which can be found on the site. Us being in partnership on the site will be a huge benefit to those who need it and with the plans we have discussed make our mutual aim more achievable.http://wronglyaccusedperson.blogspot.co.uk/2009/06/sandra-lean-joins-billy-middleton-as.html

It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to learn the police were involved in its closure

A new campaign is now being launched, being led by a Scots criminologist, Dr Sandra Lean, who has dedicated her life to fighting injustice and defending those she believes have been wrongfully convicted. She has dedicated her career to the case, which happened in her hometown of Dalkeith 15 years ago and is set to publish a book later this year which she claims shows failings in the original police investigation.

Speaking to the Herald she said:

“This would be the biggest embarrassment possibly ever for the Scottish police. “It was such a big case, the longest trial of a single accused in Scottish history. He was 14 years old when they first targeted him. “I find this in all of the cases claiming wrongful conviction. The evidence before the jury is not all the evidence and never has been, never will be. It’s the evidence that supports the prosecution narrative. “Now people find that really difficult to accept. Unless it can be tied specifically to something that the prosecution is alleging, it will not go before the jury.”
