Christmas Cards for Prisoners


Miscarriages of JusticeUK (MOJUK) News Service

They won't be home this Christmas! - or any other Christmas!

It's not all love thy fellow man for tens of thousands of people who will spend this Christmas in prison.

MOJUK are in touch with 68 prisoners, many of them miscarriages of justice, many serving time beyond tariff with no sign of a release date.

Every year MOJUK asks recipients to send a card/message of solidarity to those who will spend Christmas behind bars.

Have broken the 68 down to 5 lists, so if you are minded to send a card/message of solidarity.

Just reply to this message and in the subject line put 'Subscribe' one, two or more lists.

Many thanks,

John O for MOJUK

Visit Sandra Lean's Miscarriage of Justice site:
and see the final paragraph on her article 'No Defence':

'Innocence is no defence. In fact, being innocent is one of the biggest handicaps to the defence of an innocent person, because their ignorance of the system and how it works is used against them, time and time again.'


Sometimes people are convicted because they made a confession about something they simply did not do.

Eyewitnesses often don't see or remember clearly enough to be really sure.

Convictions should not be made solely on one type of evidence.

In cases of miscarriage of justice, other things may be 'made to fit' into a scenario which other people come to believe is what happened. The more we understand of possible reasons, the less it should actually happen.

If you know someone who is in prison, try to get some support for yourself too, or a friend to back you up
