Maldon: New book supports convicted killer's campaign for freedom
6:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Local News
A new book has been published supporting convicted killer Jeremy Bamber’s campaign for freedom.
Bamber, 52, is serving a whole life tarriff for the murders of his parents June and Nevill, his sister Sheila Caffell and her twin sons Daniel and Nicholas, six, at White House Farm in Tolleshunt D’Arcy in 1985.
He has twice lost appeals against his conviction but continues to lobby for a third appeal.
Now Andrew Hunter, MP for Basingstoke from 1983 to 2005, has written a book Beyond Reasonable Doubt which says the prosecution evidence in Bamber’s trial contained contradictions.
Mr Hunter says he expects new forensics to form part of an on-going attempt for a third appeal at the High Court.
He said: “I think we are looking at one of the worst miscarriages of justice in recent times and there is compelling evidence that much of the evidence provided by the police and others was unreliable.”
