National Civil Rights Movement, 93c Venner Road, 14 Featherstone Road, Sydenham, Southall, London SE26 5HU. Middlesex UB2 5AA. 020 8659 7713 E-Mail A_Baron@ABaron.Demon.Co.UK July 7, 2001 Dear Sir, I am writing to ask why you are continuing to spread proven lies about the case of Satpal Ram. On the page on your site dedicated to this so-called miscarriage of justice you claim, among other things, that Ram stabbed his victim, Clarke Pierce, with "a little Stanley knife" and that the victim refused to be treated by a woman doctor, discharged himself, went home and died. The man's name was actually Clarke Edward Pearce, and Ram did not stab him with a Stanley knife but with a flick knife, an illegal weapon. Ram told the police that he had used a pen knife, a claim that was totally inconsistent with both the eyewitness and the forensic evidence. Mr Pearce did not discharge himself from hospital, he was pronounced dead at 4.23am, less than two hours after Ram stabbed him in the back. Although this wilfully misleading article about Ram was obviously written some time ago, and hopefully not by yourselves, this page was updated as recently as April 2 this year. A site containing the documented facts about the Ram case, in- cluding the transcript of the judgment of Ram's 1989 appeal can be found at http://www.geocities.com/satpalramisguilty/. Yours sincerely, A Baron
Unsurprisingly, this letter went unanswered.
