93c Venner Road, Sydenham, London SE26 5HU. 020 8659 7713 E-Mail A_Baron@ABaron.Demon.Co.UK September 12, 2001 Sir, Re Vikram Dodd's article on Satpal Ram - yesterday's "Guardian"; the only controversy about Ram's conviction is the controversy that has been generated by Ram's small but dedicated army of liars. In all the articles that have appeared in the mainstream media about this so-called miscarriage of justice not one has mentioned the salient facts of the case, in particular a) that Ram was drunk at the time of the murder and was still drunk when he attended a local hospital two hours later where he gave a false name before seeking treatment to a small cut on his face. b) that Ram stabbed Pearce in the back with a flick knife, twice, possibly three times, according to an expert witness. c) that after mortally wounding Clarke Pearce, Ram gloated over his victim and said he hoped he would soon be dead. The full, documented facts of Ram's case, including the transcript of the judgment in his first appeal can be found on the website http://www.geocities.com/satpalramisguilty/ The transcript of the second appeal and the pathologists' report will be added shortly. Yours sincerely, A Baron
Unsurprisingly, this letter went unanswered.
