Michael Stone’s barrister Mark McDonald is demanding a judicial review to challenge the Criminal Case Review Commission’s refusal to refer Stone’s conviction to the Court of Appeal. This may require the CCRC to carry out forensic tests on broken strands of DNA found at the crime scene. These include fragments of DNA found on a bootlace that was discovered nearby the bodies.
Kent Police have always maintained Stone’s conviction is safe, and that Levi Bellfield – who confessed to the attack – has a history of playing mind games with officers with fake confessions.
