Andrew Malkinson, who served 17 years in prison for a rape he did not commit, has spoken of the toll the miscarriage of justice had on his "psychology, being and soul".

He told the Today programme[/size] he felt "joy at finally telling the world the truth" but also anger "that I was even tried for this".

Mr Malkinson, 57, said he was late to the interview because he slept in.

Host Justin Webb said "we at least owe him that".

Mr Malkinson was jailed in 2004 for an attack on a woman in Salford, serving 17 years in prison.

His conviction was overturned on Wednesday by the Court of Appeal.

He said his arrest and trial was "like a real bad dream happening in real time".

"I maintained my innocence - 'I didn't do this'," he said. "But once you've been convicted, you're processed like meat in an abattoir."

"Nobody offers any empathic understanding or anything like that."

To the point of being perverse,  shame on them.

Yes, but it appears that when a gross miscarriage of justice like this one has taken place the Barbarian savages who run our “Criminal Justice System” demand that their victim compensates them for their “board and lodgings” while they were having their lives destroyed day by (very long) day. And now they are reconsidering this policy at long last. Bully for them. Whoopie bloody do!


The desperate need for thousands of funerals to take place all over the European and North American continents grows ever stronger, day by day.
