Recently reported......David Blunkett is attempting to "claw back" costs spent on housing people who have had their convictions overturned.
"On Tuesday, Blunkett will fight in the Royal Courts of Justice in London for the right to charge victims of miscarriages of justice more than Ł3000
for every year they spent in jail while wrongly convicted. The logic is that the innocent man shouldn’t have been in prison eating free porridge and
sleeping for nothing under regulation grey blankets."
This is truely appalling - and, surprisingly, not covered in the major news outlets.
