The MP for the Cynon Valley has urged Justice Secretary Michael Gove to pardon a Welsh coal miner hanged nearly 200 years ago.
Labour's Ann Clwyd handed a petition at the House of Commons of behalf of MPs and people across Wales asking for Richard Lewis to have his conviction for stabbing a soldier overturned.
Lewis, known as Dic Penderyn, was arrested and charged with stabbing Donald Black with a bayonet on June 3rd 1831 during the Merthyr rising.
But Ms Clwyd said that despite residents of Merthyr being convinced of his innocence, he was found guilty and hanged on August 13th later that year.
Over 40 years a man named Ianto Parker confessed to the crime on his deathbed, while the Commons was told a man who gave evidence against Lewis later admitted lying under oath.
"There is strong feeling in Wales that Richard Lewis - Dic Penderyn - was wrongly executed, that his conviction should be overturned and that he should be granted a pardon. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges (Mr Gove) to grant a pardon to Richard Lewis - Dic Penderyn...On the instruction of Mrs Beryl Astbury and Mrs Pamela Lewis, descendants of Mr Richard Lewis, their solicitor Bernard de Maid has written to (Mr Gove) requesting a pardon for Richard Lewis. I repeat Richard Lewis's last words before his hanging on August 13, 1831, which reaffirms this miscarriage of justice, 'O Arglwydd, dyma gamwedd', which in English means, 'Oh Lord, this is an injustice'."
Ms Clwyd earlier said she was presenting the petition on behalf of her Cynon Valley constituents, fellow Labour MPs Gerald Jones (Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney) and Stephen Kinnock (Aberavon), and people from all parts of Wales.
