Update On The Cherry Groce Legal Aid Campaign

April 6, 2014

From Change.org. I publicised the petition here earlier.

Thank you for signing our petition to get justice for our mother Cherry Groce. It has meant so much to our family to have such huge support from the public.

This week we presented your signature, along with 130,000 others, to 10 Downing Street. We were joined by our MP Chuka Umunna who has been supporting us throughout this campaign.

After the delivery we found out that the Legal Aid Agency is reviewing our case and has referred our case to Lord Chancellor and Justice Minister Chris Grayling to make a decision.

This is a huge step forward. The Legal Aid Agency twice refused us legal aid but this petition has forced them to review the decision. The Lord Chancellor will have the final say and will base his decision on whether there is public-wide interest in this case. So it is more important than ever that we keep the petition growing.

Thank you for your help. We have been fighting for justice for three decades and finally we are being heard. Let’s keep it up.

Thank you,

Lee Lawrence
Cherry’s son
