New Podcast 'Wronged'

An award-winning podcast team have published a new podcast episode today called 'Wronged' which follows the story of two innocent men - Patryk Pachecka and Grzegorz Szal - who were wrongly imprisoned for murder in 2017.

Basia Cummings of Tortoise Media's Slow Newscast interviews Siobhan Grey KC who brought the case to Inside Justice after her client Patryk was convicted after a six-week trial at the Old Bailey in London. 

Siobhan had several concerns about the case and Louise Shorter, Founder, agreed to help by putting her in touch with Advisory Panel member and Trustee Jo Millington who is an expert in blood pattern analysis. 

Jo along with Siobhan and Patryk's solicitor Jason Lartey and two forensic pathologists - Professor Jack Crane CBE and Dr Claas Buschmann - who joined forces to reinvestigate the evidence against the men.

The reinvestigation was successful and the case was referred back to the Court of Appeal where the conviction was quashed and a retrial ordered. It was at this retrial in November 2021 that both Patryk and Grzegorz were found not guilty.
