Motion text

That this House notes with deep regret and sadness the recent death of Tony Stock, the victim of one of the most outrageous miscarriages of justice of modern times; congratulates the Criminal Cases Review Commission for referring Tony's conviction for the robbery of a Tesco supermarket in Leeds in 1970 to the Court of Appeal for an historic second time; regrets that the Court of Appeal has on four separate occasions failed properly to engage with the overwhelming body of evidence establishing Tony's innocence and quash his conviction to enable him to clear his name before his death; and encourages his solicitor, Glyn Maddocks, and other long time supporters to continue to work to achieve posthumous justice for Tony and his family.
