  • This is a disgusting state of affairs and one has to wonder how many men are in prison having been convicted of crimes they didn't commit because the prosecutors and police have withheld evidence. It's time these people realised that they are there to prosecute and convict the guilty, not condemn the innocent to make the unsolved crime figures look better.

    A full investigation into each of these cases should be carried out and the police officers and prosecutors involved brought to account.
