George compensation ruling is a 'travesty of justice'

Barry George's sister Michelle Diskin has described the High Court's decision to halt her brother's compensation bid was a "travesty of justice".

There never was any viable evidence against Barry.

This whole case from April 2000 until today has been a smoke and mirrors exercise designed to placate a worried public, and give the impression that justice had been done.

Well neither the Dando family, nor our family, has seen any justice in the past 13 years.
