so you find it laughable that i have looked into the facts of the case and come to the conclusion that an innocent man was locked up? i have said several times he should not have been released on compassionate grounds, i don't agree with the decision but it was one that mr macaskill was legally entitled to make. if it had been my decision then his appeal would have been heard. of course my thinking he was innocent is my opinion but it is an opinion based on researching into the evidence that was provided at court, the fact that evidence has been witheld for "reasons of national security" and the political implications of both the original trial and the appeal that . i hadn't been going to veer away from the decision into the seperate subject of his guilt but these comments prompted me to state that i think he is innocent.
