co-founder, Innovation of Justice, miscarriages of justice campaign
Liam Allan was falsely accused of multiple rape by a previous partner in 2016. Two years on, in light of exculpatory evidence being withheld, the case came to an abrupt end. The officer in charge was found to have failed to disclose vital evidence proving his innocence. The Metropolitan Police offered an apology to Liam Allan, with many cases of false allegations being brought to the public’s attention through the media. Since his case, Liam Allan has co-founded the campaign called Innovation of Justice, which aims to assist in making the necessary changes to prevent miscarriages of justice and raise awareness around the topic. He is now an assistant manager and a student.
