I know what you’re thinking: “Blimey, this is taking a long time.” Unfortunately, that’s the nature of the beast. The ‘beast’ in this context is the criminal justice system. In one sense, this is a good sign. I’ve got a solicitor willing to investigate every possible avenue.
Not only have I got one of the best appeal solicitors representing me, I’ve also got one of the top Qcs and forensic Professors working, at this stage, pro bono on my case. Plus, we’ve now had a letter from Lancaster University Innocence Project, who are interested in my case. Hopefully, they will be able to assist.
I’m confident that the CCRC application will be going in at some point this year.
Be happy be safe.
