â€˜Cardiff Newsagent Threeâ€™ Report: No Perjury.
Newsagent Phillip Saunders was murdered in 1987. Innocent men, the Cardiff Newsagent Three, spent eleven years in jail, but the long-awaited South Wales Police report into the case says there is insufficient evidence to charge any of the original trial witnesses with perjury, Wales Online reports this week.
â€œI remain disappointed that Stuart Lewis was not charged, but believe overall that this is a fair report,â€ commented Michael Oâ€™Brien. â€œA lot of positive changes have been made by the police so that what happened in our case should never happen again. I now want to put what happened behind me and move on in my life. Obviously I would like to see whoever was responsible for the murder of Phillip Saunders brought to justice.â€
â€œAs a result of forensic advances, South Wales Police recently decided to revisit the murder of Phillip Saunders, to look in particular at whether DNA or other new opportunities exist,â€ Detective Chief Superintendent Lorraine Davies said. â€œSince the murder of Phillip Saunders 28 years ago, a number of investigations have taken place but despite this we still believe there could be someone who has vital information.â€
