Eddie Gilfoyle had been long forgotten in the CCRC backlog of cases; however he finally received an answer from the watchdog in July this year. Not the answer he was looking for though.
Some bits of evidence were discredited in every appeal and CCRC application he had and now there is almost nothing left. However, the CCRC only refers cases based on evidence it did not have before and all these discredited bits are now known and, therefore, ineligible for a new investigation.
This is not going to be the last time I mention this case and I hope Mr Gilfoyle will keep fighting!
