Joint Enterprise Challenge Fails.

Judges have refused to overturn guilty verdicts in thirteen test cases following February’s Supreme Court ruling that the law had been wrongly interpreted for thirty years.

The convictions of thirteen men, including Tyler Burton, Nicholas Terrelonge, Asher Johnson, Lewis Johnson and Reece Garwood, were all declared safe.

Lord Thomas said the court was "satisfied that there was no injustice, let alone substantial injustice".

The decision was met with cries of protest by supporters in the public gallery with shouts of "no justice, no peace".
