Everyone seems to be talking about the Netflix series “Making A Murderer” about how Manitowoc County in the United States framed Stephen Avery not once but twice.
It’s very interesting to hear how aghast the Irish people and media are about this miscarriage of justice as if this has never happened in Ireland or Britain, have we forgotten about the Guildford 4, Birmingham 6 and the Maguire 7?
Compare the coverage Stephen Avery has received here in Ireland to the complete lack of media attention and public outcry over our own making a murderer case in occupied Ireland.
The Craigavon 2 Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton have been imprisoned for over six years for something they did not do yet no one seems to care.
The Irish media and human rights groups have rightly highlighted the case of Ibrahim Halawa in Egypt but ignore a case just a few miles up the road, why?
Will it take an american documentary for the Irish people, media, human rights groups etc to take notice of this miscarriage of justice?
