Luke Mitchell - Witness Scott Forbes
« on: August 19, 2012, 09:28:45 PM »
Mat, it is extremely interesting that SF Scott Forbes is being mentioned tonight on the blue forum and reference is being made to his past.   This was the guy who took his student pal Mark Kane to the police when he came home the day after Jodi's murder with scratches on his face.

I have spoken to this guy at length about events.

Scott Forbes threatened me with legal action over the case because as a prospective lawyer he didn't want his name all over the internet.

Is this the same Scott Forbes mentioned in MOJO's 2010 annual report alongside Paul McLaughlin?

”The Sandra Lean below has been actively concerned with the Luke Mitchell case since before his conviction.
Her book is very concerned about what passes for circumstantial evidence. In it she deals with the Luke Mitchell case.
I understand her to also have been working cooperatively with the Frontline production team.

A lot of ongoing analysis of the prosecution has continued. This has indicated general weaknesses in its circumstantial argument.
Significant data not led at trial now is known.
Chances of successful legal appeal are very much hampered by the grounds of appeal being allowed.

Overturning of the conviction may well have to be pressed by argument and publicity out-with the legal process.

The 'psychology' which became part of the prosecution, at trial and in public domain, remains of concern.

"No Smoke - The Shocking Truth About British Justice (Paperback)
by Lady Sandra Lean (Author)
Price: £11.99 (Amazon)

Synopsis
A life-long fascination with the workings of the human mind, and especially the workings of the "criminal mind," led Sandra Lean, at the age of 32, through the doors of Napier University in Edinburgh. A single parent of two young children, she studied Psychology and Sociology to Honours Degree level. A Masters' Degree in Forensic Psychology seemed like the most obvious next step, until a local, high-profile murder hit the headlines. Behind the scenes, Sandra Lean began sifting through the facts, only to discover that all was not as it seemed. What she found led her to other, similar cases, and more patient, methodical sifting, in an investigation that was to last almost four years. The result was a shocking, but true, discovery. Innocent people are being locked up in our prisons, convicted of the most horrific crimes, on a regular basis. These are not one-off, tragic mistakes, but rather, a routine, everyday occurrence. For every high-profile miscarriage of justice that we hear about, there are dozens more that never make the news. No Smoke examines just some of these cases, highlighting the very human tragedy of wrongful conviction, and pointing out the unthinkable: this could happen to any one of us."

At least they paid attention. Now hopefully, the other concerns about the case can get put out there for them to consider

Court move by Mitchell team rejected after Crown attacks 'fishing inquiry'

The Crown have told judges that Mr Forbes' claims have been investigated and dismissed. “To suggest that the known material points to a compelling circumstantial case against a known individual is quite untenable,” said Mr Beckett.

“He continued: “They should have known that since October 2006 when they were given information by Scott Forbes but, if they were unable to work it out for themselves, they should have known that since January 24 when I gave certain information to your lordships.

Sounds to me Scott Forbes can’t let this go because he’s convinced himself of something for so long it’s distorted his cognitions.

The lawyers have a sworn statement from another man, Scott Forbes of Edinburgh, which makes claims that Mr Kane was interested in pictures of mutilated women and that he had unexplained injuries at the time of Jodi's murder.

The Crown have told judges that Mr Forbes' claims have been investigated and dismissed. “To suggest that the known material points to a compelling circumstantial case against a known individual is quite untenable,” said Mr Beckett.

He continued: “They should have known that since October 2006 when they were given information by Scott Forbes but, if they were unable to work it out for themselves, they should have known that since January 24 when I gave certain information to your lordships.”

Jane Farquarson, junior counsel for Mitchell, now 19, was forced to concede that there was some doubt about whether this ground of appeal should be pursued.

But, she said, more checks were needed.

They had heard of “extensive and troubling graffiti” which Mr Kane was supposed to have scratched or etched round the college with a knife.

“Each time we get a little more information it takes us down various paths.”

That was why the lawyers wanted help to contact Mr Kane's fellow students and probation supervisors about his drinking and drug use and his access to internet websites.

Appeal judges have still to issue a decision on the claims they have already heard that Mitchell suffered a miscarriage of justice.

They have also given Mr Findlay a March 21 deadline to put together a convincing argument that they should hear new evidence.

“But John Beckett QC, for the Crown, revealed that police investigations cast doubt on what Mr Forbes had told solicitors and a BBC Frontline Scotland programme in May last year.
Mr Forbes had alleged that Mr Kane, a student at Newbattle Abbey College at the time of Jodi's murder, had written an essay on "killing a girl in the woods".

He also claimed that a teacher at the college could confirm this.
Mr Beckett said: "When this came to light the Crown had police take a statement from the lecturer which confirmed Kane wrote no such essay at all."
Mr Beckett also said Mr Forbes had told Mr Kane to co-operate "and we will get £50,000 from the newspapers".
