Motion text

That this House mourns the passing of Tony Paris at the age of 65: remembers his fight for justice after his wrongful conviction and imprisonment alongside Yusef Abdullahi and Stephen Miller as part of the Cardiff Three for the murder of Lynette White in 1990; notes that despite having their convictions quashed at the court of Appeal and receiving full apologies from South Wales Police, the corruption trial against the former police officers involved in the case fell due to administrative errors; further notes that the case of the Cardiff Three will be recounted in communities across Wales for generations to come and has come to symbolise the fight for BAME communities to be treated equally under the criminal justice system; celebrates Tony’s life work in championing justice for all and whose legacy now continues through his daughter Cassie Paris; and supports her campaign in naming a street in Butetown, Cardiff after Tony.
