Oliver Campbell

CASE №00293
NAME: Oliver Campbell
COUNTRY: UK
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2022
CASE INFORMATION:

Oliver Campbell from London (UK) spent 11 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.

In 1990, Oliver Campbell, who was 19 at the time, was convicted of murdering a shop owner. Campbell has learning difficulties, so lawyers said he was easily suggestible and did not understand the consequences of his actions during interrogation. At one of the interrogations, at which the lawyer was absent, he confessed to the murder, although he did not commit it. Campbell claims that he was put under pressure to admit a crime he did not commit.

Campbell was sentenced to life in prison, but he was released in 2002. In March 2021, Campbell’s attorney called Criminal Cases Review Commission to review the case.

MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:

“The police did not have anything like sufficient evidence, probably even to get a prosecution off the ground, let alone a conviction without something more. And the more was going to be a confession,” said Campbell’s lawyer Arthur Mullinger.

Campbell’s lawyer Arthur Mullinger said: “The officer should have telephoned me and said, ‘I think Oliver wants to speak to me. Will you come over to be part of the interview?’ And I would have said, ‘yes, of course’… And we would have had the interview.”
