John-Paul Grecian

Year of crime:
Year conviction was overturned:

John-Paul Grecian was wrongly implicated in the “arms-to-Iraq” affair. His conviction was quashed after the Scott inquiry discovered the government had prior knowledge of the illegal trade and it had been suppressed (Grecian told British intelligence about Sadam Hussains “supergun” project several months before the then government had admitted).
