Jeremy Bamber chose a poem to remember his family. "They A Not Dead" encompasses the memory of Nevill, June, Sheila, Nicholas and Daniel by using the elements of nature. Jeremy also asked that everyone who has sent messages of support be thanked. He will respond to you individually. 

Latest Blog from Jeremy 09.07.14

http://jeremybamber.blogspot.co.uk
The Supreme Court 
ruled upon the Kevin Nunn case recently when the judges decided prisoners should not retain the same rights concerning disclosure of the evidence as they had pre-trial. Once an individual is convicted they cannot simply request access to documents or forensic samples as they could, had such a request been submitted pre-trial.

18.02.14 Court of Appeal Upholds Whole Life Orders

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-26236225
"The Court of Appeal has upheld the principle of whole-life prison terms in two cases involving murderers. The court increased a 40-year tariff on murderer Ian McLoughlin to a whole-life tariff, after the trial judge had said he was unable to pass that sentence. They also dismissed an appeal by murderer Lee Newell that his whole-life order was "manifestly excessive". The rulings come seven months after the European Court of Human Rights ruled such terms should be reviewed."

Media Hub update 16.10.13

Sunday 13th October saw a double page article in the Mail, on Andrew Hunter's work on the case of Jeremy Bamber, along with new evidence which will be discussed in his forthcoming book 'Beyond Reasonable Doubt.' Check out our media hub for links to this and other articles in the mainstream media.

The Sound Moderator 10.10.13

There is comprehensive material showing that evidence was altered, added to, and  manipulated by police in the case of Jeremy Bamber and none more so than that of the sound moderator, the key prosecution exhibit. Forensic scientists told the City of London police investigation in 1991 that their statements were altered without their knowledge, and still nothing has been done . . . If you were involved in the case and have any information on the sound moderator please contact us here. 

26.09.13 Legal Aid Reforms

Catch up with the latest from Jeremy Bamber on Legal Aid; why it is important for all of us, including prisoners on whole life orders, and those maintaining innocence. 

The Bloodied Bible 23.08.13

The bloodied Bible found next to the body of Sheila Caffell was never examined by the Defence. Photographs of it were in existence, police denied they ever took any. The bloodied prints on the Bible tested positive, but the prints were not disclosed, this means they cannot possibly belong to Jeremy Bamber and he is an innocent man as he has always maintained. 

The 28th Anniversary of the Tragedies

Guardian Journalist, award winning Human Right's Campaigner, and friend of Jeremy's, Eric Allison, has written a short piece for Jeremy's blog marking the 28th anniversary of the tragedies at White House Farm on the 7th of August 1985. As Jeremy approaches his 29th year of wrongful imprisonment Eric's words inspire us in our fight to help Jeremy to freedom. 


Lie Detector Passed

"Daughter Gone Berserk"

Nevill’s call to police is cast iron proof that Jeremy was not and could not have been responsible for the deaths. Read on to discover the details of Nevills’ call to report his daughter’s psychotic episode, and how attempts were made to smother the fact the call ever happened.

18.04.13 Public Services Let Down Mentally Ill Mothers

Sheila Caffell was a mentally ill single parent, she and her family were not sufficiently supported by social services. Reports of women who become violent as a result of their mental illness have been in the headlines yet again recently with the case of Nicola Edgington. The latest tragedy involves a young mother of three, Fiona Anderson who was pregnant when she allegedly killed her children and committed suicide. Since Care in the Community came into full force in the mid 1980's infanticide and parricide by women has been difficult for our society to comprehend. This resulted in the wrongful convictions of Jeremy Bamber, for the murder of his family and also Eddie Gilfoyle, for murdering his wife who was heavily pregnant when she hanged herself. It's time our society, justice system and healthcare system understand the threat to families and communities and makes changes necessary to stop needless deaths.  

I Will Feel Hope Again

Listen to Jeremy Bamber talking to Eric Allison @allison_eric 
 of the Guardian in a conversation recorded in 2011. 

Why was the Evidence Destroyed?

In 1994 a judge ruled that the Home Office was to disclose all material to Jeremy Bamber's legal team. The material was never given to the Defence and records show that a Special Branch officer ordered the destruction of all DNA exhibits except the Sound Moderator. Material was incinerated at a unit off the North Circular Road while a man serves whole life in prison based on this evidence.

15.5.13 Police Corruption 'Virulent'

"IPCC & Police Complaints" is a resource of links to external sources regarding incidents of police corruption. The page will be updated regularly to include examples of malpractice in the UK including actions by Essex Police Officers who left a trail of fabricated evidence in their personal notes and formal paperwork to aid the conviction of Jeremy Bamber. 

Crimes That Shook Britain Jeremy Bamber

Johnny Escobar plays Jeremy Bamber in Title Role's award nominated production of Crimes That Shook Britain. 
The production questions the accuracy of the prosecution account. Watch the programme and make up your own mind. 

Why Didn't Sheila Fight Back?

The prosecution's case was that Sheila sat calmly and in a rational state of mind allowed her brother to take her life. It's unthinkable that Sheila would calmly sit down and allow Jeremy to awkwardly position a rifle under her chin to shoot her. If Sheila had made a full recovery from her previous psychotic episodes, why then did she not fight hard to save her children?

Jeremy and the Lie Detector 28.03.13

From The Jeremy Kyle sofa to courtrooms across the US and Europe, the Polygraph, the Lie Detector to many, is a widely debated and an often controversial issue but its relevance and standing in the Jeremy Bamber case cannot be understated. We can now chart its history and development plus its social and judicial journeys. Discover the shocking hypocrisy that sees the test used to imprison some while its powers to liberate others remain thwarted despite recognised accuracy up to 98%. How does the test really work? This article broaches the key facts and illustrates how it has helped bring some to justice and may yet help others find freedom.


04.07.13 Grand Chamber Ruling 9 July 2013 at 10.30 a.m Strasbourg

The ECHR Grand Chamber ruled that Whole Life Tariff Prisoners should have sentence reviews. Jeremy Bamber has never had a review or any parole hearing, so one is now due! It is apparently illegal for someone to serve a sentence which was not available at trial, but in Jeremy's case the law has not been applied, the trial judge recommended 25 years and Jeremy has currently served 28 years including time held on remand. Back i
n January 2012 the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg voted that whole life sentences do not contravene Article 3 of Human Rights Law, even in Jeremy's case where a whole life sentence was imposed retrospectively, politically, and in secret. On the 28th of November 2012 the appeal went further to the European Grand Chamber which heard the case and reserved judgement. Watch the court web cast click this link. 

Jeremy's Alibi

Who did police officers see moving inside the house while Jeremy was with them? Who were police 'In Conversation' with? Why did police see a 'female body' in the kitchen? Why were there two bodies downstairs, later to be only one body downstairs? Why did police cover the fact that Nevill Bamber called them? 

A Quick Overview of the Case

So what's it all about? If you've only recently come to know Jeremy's name you  may be looking for more information on who he is, how he came to be wrongly imprisoned, and why the campaign for his freedom is so important. @bambertweets


The Jury's Question: Relatives Motive

The Jury asked the court "If Jeremy Bamber was found guilty and imprisoned for may years, who would be the beneficiaries of the Bamber estate and monies? Could it be his uncle and family? A possible motive" Find out about the Relatives and the secret land purchase made by Nevill Bamber which the Jury knew nothing of.



Psychological Reports on Jeremy

Jeremy Bamber is mistakenly described as being a psychopath, he has undertaken 27 different psychological analysis and never found to have psychopthay or any mental health disorders.

Julie Mugford and 25k NOTW Deal

Julie Mugford was already a proven liar with her story of the hitman that never was. Her statements contain many fabrications. The star prosecution witness also accepted 25k from NOTW upon Jeremy's conviction which was pre-arranged through a solicitor before the end of the trial.

Homophobia

Jeremy Bamber associated with homosexuals, but in 1985 this was frowned upon by the establishment, police, and traditional society. Amid AIDS as the "Gay Plague" the case documents provide an extensive and startling insight into police persecution of Jeremy and his friends, who were frequently described by officers and his relatives as  'poofs' and 'queers'.

Sheila Killed the Family

There is absolutely no question that Sheila Caffell killed her family in a psychotic episode, this page is to detail just some of the major factors in piecing together how and why she did it.

21.04.13 Save Legal Aid

One day you might need a lawyer, what if you couldn't afford one? What if you were innocent of the crimes you were accused of? What if the person closest to you needed legal representation but you didn't have the money to help them? Legal aid has already been savagely cut so that prisoners like Jeremy, on whole life tariffs are not entitled to any legal aid, the situation is about to get worse. Only very wealthy people will be able to afford to pay a solicitor - that's not the equality we expect from a democratic society. Sign this petition to prevent further changes to legal aid.

18.07.13 'Knee jerk reaction on Bamber say Peers"

'Knee-jerk reactions' from MP's on European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) judgements "do incredible damage to our international reputation", said Labour's Lord Tomlinson on 17 July 2013. He made the comment during an oral question on the case of Jeremy Bamber. Link to video @ 24mins in. 

18.06.12 How do Legal Aid Cuts Affect Us All?

The Government will give Legal Aid work to companies who bid the lowest price to obtain the contract.
This means that Criminal Cases will be defended by divisions of companies like Eddie Stobart, the trucking company.There will also be a significant financial incentive for law firms to persuade clients to plead guilty, because contractors will be paid the same rate for each trial no matter how long. This is likely to increase Miscarriages of Justice cases. Also, Legal aid will no longer be available for the first stage of a Judicial Review, this means that government bodies acting unlawfully such as the Home Office, Social Services, Prisons or Police will frequently go unchallenged and this will seriously impede our Civil Rights. Find out more about other areas where legal aid is being cut by reading this leaflet.
