‘Such action is necessary to avoid perpetuating what a growing number of people fear may be one of the greatest miscarriages of justice of our times.’ – Andrew Hunter MP, 9th February 2005.
Andrew Hunter, then MP for Basingstoke raised concerns in the Houses of Parliament over the Bamber case and called for the home office to look closely at the issue of non-disclosure of evidence and the behaviour of Essex Police.
Issues covered were the re-writing and editing of police radio logs, withheld audio tapes along with telephone logs from White House Farm. Further evidence raised were a number of photographs showing Sheila Caffell’s bloodied feet and lack of livor mortis. Also mentioned during the debate were other pieces of evidence also withheld including video recordings of the crime scene and the incident report. The notebooks of the original head of the investigation, Inspector Jones who believed Bamber innocent, these have still not been made available to Bamber’s legal team.
