  Wrongful Imprisonment 2 August 2004  
What support is available for people released on appeal?

Last December Angela Canning was cleared for murdering her two babies. This has led to the wholesale review of cases of parents and carers convicted of killing their babies over the last ten years. The Attorney General has already suggested that it might be appropriate for 24 cases to be considered for appeal.

But what help is available for people who have been released from wrongful imprisonment and why is it often less than if the accused  had been found guilty?  

Jenni talks to Amarjit Kaur from the Citizens Advice Bureau who are piloting a project to support these innocent people.
