Falsely Accused Day – Sept 9th
Falsely Accused Day is every year on September 9th, the date of the birthday of our much loved member of FACT, the late Simon Warr.
To quote from the website of Falsely Accused Day
“Every year, thousands of innocent men and women are falsely accused of serious criminal offences. In its efforts to ensure justice for genuine victims of horrific crimes, our criminal justice system has dispensed with Due Process and allowed itself to be used by people with malicious intent. Falsely Accused Day is intended to raise awareness of just how easy it is to fall victim to a false accusation, to point out how the Presumption of Innocence has been removed and how the law continues to be eroded in the name of justice.”
This year there is a chance to make your voice heard in a peaceful demonstration in London and in Liverpool.
