About this product
- DescriptionHer crime - to speak the truth and refuse to accept the mis-identification of her fingerprint, allegedly found at a murder scene she should t have entered. During those nine years, her case became an international cause celebre during which she gained the support of the world fingerprint experts community and much of the world's press whilst at home being persecuted by government ministers, smeared by senior police officers and having her integrity traduced by Scottish forensic experts and Scottish politicians. Now, for the first time the true and authorized story of the Shirley McKie case is told by her father Iain - her strongest champion - and former MSP Michael Russell who has worked alongside the McKie family for over seven years.
- Author BiographyIain McKie was a police officer for thirty years, rising to the rank of Superintendent. He has spent the last ten years fighting the Police, the Scottish Criminal Records Office and the Scottish Executive after experts wrongly identified his daughter's fingerprint at a murder scene. He has researched fingerprinting extensively, spoken at forensic conferences in the UK, Canada and America and is recognised as a campaigner who has not only secured justice for his family but has also brought about major changes in the forensic services in Scotland and in fingerprinting world wide. Married with seven children, he now lives in Ayr. Michael Russell is a well-known author and commentator who was an MSP for the South of Scotland from 1999 to 2003. He met Iain and Shirley McKie in February 2000, was convinced by them, and agreed to take on Shirley's case as a parliamentarian. He has championed it in politics and the media ever since. He lives in Argyll.
