Justice for Michael Shields

I am delighted that Michael Shields has today been pardoned and will be released from prison. Michael, his family, and supporters have been through the most horrendous ordeal over the last four and a half years but they remained resolute and courageous in their fight for justice.

There remain many questions for the Justice Secretary and his colleagues to answer, having kept this innocent man in prison for so long, but that is for another day. Today is a day to celebrate; a day to be thankful that this awful miscarriage of justice is over.
