BBC Newsnight interview Lewis Nedas clients upon 'Fake Sheikh' conviction and sentence.

newsnight 2John Sweeney of BBC Newsnight interviewed three of our clients; John Alford, Herbie Hide and Alex Smith, in our offices on 21/10/2016, about their personal suffering as a result of the 'Fake Sheikh' Mazer Mahmood sting entrapments, which led to their convictions.

During the interview they explain how these convictions have devastated their lives and those of their families, and it makes very powerful television.

All three are applying to the CCRC so that their convictions can be overturned as a result of Mahmood conviction for perverting the course of justice.

Statement of John Alford

Parliament enacted the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 over 30 years ago which revolutionised policing, protecting British Citizens from corrupt police practices and unscrupulous behaviour.

To date, despite the findings in the Leveson inquiry, payments by newspapers for illegally hacking private individuals and several aborted trials at enormous public expense, there is still nothing in place with teeth, to prevent rogue and dishonest journalists securing a story against individuals using any methods they see fit, regardless of the human cost.

Following his (prison) sentence today, having been convicted by 12 members of a jury good and true, the public now sees that Mazher Mahmood has been proved a dishonest journalist with dishonest practices, who routinely manipulated evidence, lied and cajoled witnesses to obtain a story for his paymasters, whatever it took.

I was, as were many of his targets, victims of this vile, corrupt regime – he was given enormous budgets and carte-blanche to create crimes that would never have existed but for his existence. In my case Mazher Mahmood withheld evidence, destroyed tape recordings and lied on oath again and again, hiding behind a false cloak of ‘journalistic privilege.’ This didn’t happen to just me, but on dozens of occasions to others, who have had their lives ruined.

During his ‘career’ he has hoodwinked prosecution barristers, respected judges and the great British public. There are a number of cases involving him and his methods, including mine, with the Criminal Cases Review Commission. Today is a day of hope for all of his victims and a day of victory for those proper journalists that stood up to him and are willing to report the truth.
