Free Invitation. Will be of interest to writers of crime fact/fiction or procedural literature.
On behalf of Inside Justice, the charity which investigates miscarriages of justice, and myself we
are delighted to invite you to a special event at the iconic MANCHESTER ART GALLERY on
Friday 1 July.
We hope you can join us for an exclusive evening reception where Tony Award winning actor
Tom Conti will welcome you all, introducing Louise Shorter (Founder of Inside Justice),
Siobhan Grey QC (Libertas Chambers) and Jason Lartey (Lartey & Co Solicitors) who will
discuss their successful overturning of the murder conviction of Patryk Pachecka. Patryk was
wrongly convicted and then acquitted at the Central Criminal Court in 2021.
This is a unique opportunity for you, and others from the legal profession, to hear first hand from
the key players in the case including Richard Vardon (18 St John Street Chambers) and
forensic expert Jo Millington along with pathologist Professor Jack Crane CBE and Dr Claas
Buschmann about their experiences in reviewing the Crown’s scientific evidence.
The evening presentations will lead you through the appeal and retrial process, and explain how
the forensic and pathology evidence and collaboration with journalists changed the narrative of
this wrongful conviction case.
Join us at the Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley St, Manchester. Doors open at 5.15pm. There will
be a drinks reception after the presentations until 8pm.
