If he is innocent and it seems that he is then the one who did it should get sorted now.

Apparently, he went forward and gave a statement to the family and independent witnesses, Jack Straw took this into account when making his decision.

A disgrace. The man who was attacked identified Shields as his attacker.

Strange isn't it, but after the Heysel disaster, they didn't go around the streets of Liverpool screaming "justice", rounding up the guilty and handing them over to the law.

I strongly opposed this. I do believe he was innocent, the Bulgarian justic system completely messed up and the "investigation" was a shambles from day, with no actual hard evidence discovered, and more evidence to suggest it wasnt Michael, plus of course the subsequent admittance of guilt by another person.

However my big concern with his pardon, is the consequences it will pose for all future British prisoners abroad, who have been wrongly convicted.

I know he's been pardoned, but his conviction has not been quashed, which can only be done in Bulgaria, i wonder if their now going to try and do that or settle for what he has got.
