Statement from Kevin Nunn
(Posted on 01/07/14)Share:
Following the Supreme Court's decision not to force Suffolk Constabulary to release key exhibits for new forensic testing, lifer Kevin Nunn told Inside Justice:
"The Supreme Court ruling is a bitter disappointment to my family, supporters and myself in the long struggle to prove my innocence.
We didn't ask for anything special but just a level playing field for access to forensic samples that if tested with improvements in forensic methods, had a very realistic chance of providing the fresh evidence required in any future appeal process.
This was a missed opportunity for the court to impart some common sense and wisdom particularly towards the retained spermatozoa sample that was given such prominence by the prosecution during the original trial .
This irrational Supreme Court ruling will sadly help conceal the truth in this and many other similar miscarriage cases."
