Justice for Michael Ross - Campaign Progress
Just wanted to let you know about a newly released case page on our website, available at the following link:

This page is a Scottish version of Netflix series 'Making a Murderer'

I know that members of SMF will find this very interesting and will be able to absorb and relate to all of the detail we've released.

Please spread the word if you feel inclined to do so,

In gratitude,

Ben Young

Last June, the SCCRC got my first application and part of that application/review was to have a mobile checked for a photograph that would have confirmed that my friends had a phone in his hand and not a gun as told by two crown witnesses, boyfriend/girlfriend.

The SCCRC wrongly as ...
