The Innocence Project - The Innocence Network
The INUK was launched in September 2004 as the problem of the wrongful conviction of innocent people was insufficiently resolved by the creation of the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC), the body set up in the wake of notorious cases such as the Guilford 4 and the Birmingham 6 to investigate alleged cases of miscarriage of justice.
The INUK is a university-based initiative, which draws collaborative support from all parts of the miscarriages of justice jigsaw- academics, criminal appeal lawyers, victim support groups and campaigning organisations, forensic scientists and investigative journalists.
The Innocence Network UK works towards ‘educating to overturn and prevent the wrongful conviction of innocent people’, and endeavours to influence practical changes to the criminal justice system in this pressing area of public concern.
Importantly, the INUK is not a campaign or victim support group.
