The Sterling Redemption Book James Edminston

$26
The untold true story of James Edmiston who suffered an extraordinary miscarriage of justice in 1983 when senior officials blocked vital witnesses coming to his trial which led to a personal tragedy; a broken marriage, and the loss of a business.The book explains how he was wrongly charged with alleged illegal exports to Iraq, and then took on the establishment against seemingly impossible odds for 25 years, to establish his innocence and to win record compensation from the British government in a truly remarkable case. Divorced and bankrupted, he is now rebuilding a shattered life, nearly 30 years later. In 1993, the Scott Inquiry unearthed serious misconduct by senior officials who colluded to block vital defence witnesses from coming to trial - behaviour described by Lord Justice Scott as "disgraceful" and "reprehensible". Nevertheless, the officials concerned have escaped prosecution and some were even promoted. But by 1993, it was too late for Edmiston. He had suffered the enforced sale of his successful business, the Sterling Armament Company, the loss of 150 jobs and his town house on the Phillimore Estate Kensington; financial ruin; and divorce in 1990. He believes that there may have been an ulterior motive for the prosecution and he was a pawn in a high-stakes political game.Determined that the government should acknowledge his innocence and to compensate him and apologise, the case was thought to be impossible. After a successful judicial review against the Home Secretary, the government finally awarded him record compensation in 2008 but without an apology.
