The Miscarriages of Justice Organisation is a human rights organisation set up by Paddy Hill and John McManus who are dedicated to assisting innocent people both in prison and after their release. Our main objectives are to help counsel innocent people after they are released from prison and to gradually help them come to terms with the modern world.

Our second objective is as an advocacy service helping innocent victims who are still inside prison claiming they are innocent. This is carried out by recommending 'good' defence lawyers, as well as forensic experts and contacts within the media to raise the profile of their cases and bring them to the public's attention.

We have been involved with high profile cases who have won their freedom after serving sentences ranging from four years to twenty-five years. These people were wrongly imprisoned because of a miscarriage of justice and since their release have had great difficulty fitting back into our modern society.

Here at M.O.J.O. we are committed to the establishment of a Retreat to help depressurise victims and prepare them for their return to the society from which they should never have been taken. The Retreat will be unique project, using shared counselling experiences to help victims gradually come to terms with what has happened to them. All of them suffer from post traumatic stress disorders and are in desperate need of help. It is for this reason we are launching a new campaign to raise £500,000 to set up a M.O.J.O. Retreat.


M.O.J.O. Scotland is funded by the Scottish Government
