What Inspired Us
Natural reason alone is sufficient to understand the risks to all citizens of being unjustly accused and deprived of freedom when as many as one in ten of those jailed for serious crimes are potentially innocent.
As Martin Luther King Jr once said “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly”.
It was Justice Kirby (1991:1047) who stated “it should be acknowledged wholeheartedly that, in too many cases, it has been the media rather than the institutions of justice or the judges, which have been vindicated… Embarrassing as it is to say… It was a band of loyal journalists who supported them, rather than the judicial institutions which actually led to the termination of that injustice”.
And so it is that for some of our members it was media reports concerning miscarriages of justice, for others the wrongful convictions of close relatives friends or clients that motivated each of us to be part of the Miscarriage of Justice Support Fund Inc Association. Join us in our quest for justice everywhere by helping those victims nearest to us here today.
