Human Rights Committee member Glyn Maddocks reflects on his pioneering work with the Centre for Criminal Appeals, and his long fight to overturn miscarriages of justice.

Glyn was instrumental in setting up the Centre for Criminal Appeals, and has devoted more than 20 years of his career to freeing victims of miscarriages of justice from jail and clearing their names.

In this podcast, Glyn tells us about his work in trying to overturn the convictions of Tony Stocks and Paul Blackburn, and the failures of the criminal justice system in overturning wrongful convictions.
