Stuart Blackledge

Year of crime:
1988
Year conviction was overturned:
1995

Stuart Blackledge 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, a co-defendant) told British intelligence about Sadam Hussains “supergun” project several months before the then government had admitted).
