BARRY George – the oddball cleared of murdering TV beauty Jill Dando after serving eight years for the crime – has been REFUSED compensation for his time behind bars.
Despite a \”not guilty\” verdict in George\’s retrial, Government law chiefs REJECTED his massive £1.4 million claim with a shock ruling that he has not proven his innocence.
George – known in his London home patch as \”the local weirdo\” with convictions for attempted rape and incecent assault – demanded the huge sum as payback for lost earnings, wrongful imprisonment, stress and destruction of character.
But a source close to him revealed: \”The Ministry of Justice have totally blown Barry out of the water.
\”They wrote and told him he\’ll be getting absolutely NOTHING as he has no reputation to damage and hasn\’t PROVED he\’s totally in the clear.
OK, so it\’s News of the Screws so a pinch of salt is necessary. But is this true? That he\’s being denied compensation for being unrighteously jugged?
I\’ve been known to comment on this subject before:
If we as a society get things wrong and imprison the innocent it is our duty, as that very society, to both say sorry and to compensate them as best we can. What we offer can only ever be inadequate but to deny this moral fact, to save the price of MP’s pork pies?
You fuck Clarke, for shame.
Apparently it\’s now them fucks.
