"I was shocked and angered over the court of appeal's decision to uphold Susan's conviction when there was overwhelming evidence to prove her innocence. The fact the CCRC has ordered a full-scale reinvestigation of the case demonstrates the extraordinary strength of the evidence in Susan's favour, as well as showing that the current Appeal system is failing us.
