jftc2 protest at Downing street

Yesterday on the 16th May 2016, family members of Brendan McConville and John-Paul Wootton took the Justice for the Craigavon Two campaign to 10 Downing Street and along with our friends from the campaign group JENGbA (Joint Enterprise Not Guilty by Association) demanded an immediate review on all cases of Joint Enterprise – including that of Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton. Under joint enterprise legislation a person can be found guilty for another person’s crime, even though under criminal law it is generally only offenders that can be held liable for their actions. In February this year the Supreme Court in London ruled that the principle of joint enterprise had been wrongly interpreted for over thirty years. With so many innocent people, convicted under joint enterprise currently serving life in prisons across Britain and Ireland, we marched with JENGbA to Downing Street yesterday to put pressure upon the British government to review all cases of joint enterprise immediately. In the case of the Craigavon Two, a role has never been attributed to neither Brendan nor John Paul. Kate Carroll (wife of murdered PSNI Constable Stephen Carroll) even stated herself that she believed her husband’s killers were still not apprehended. Yet seven years later Brendan and John Paul are still in Maghaberry prison, serving life sentences for something someone else did. This cannot continue. This is a miscarriage of justice, this is Birmingham, Guildford and Woolwich all over again, this is a violation of human rights, this is an abuse of state power. This is injustice. #jftc2
