Letter: Only the guilty qualify for parole

Sir: In 'Prisoner accuses police of letting him 'rot in jail' ' (18 June) you say 'the sentence review system dictates that those who maintain their innocence do not qualify for early parole because they are not facing up to their offences'.

Thus, someone who is innocent but cannot prove it gets no parole, and you need to be guilty to get parole. What a wicked system] When will the people who made this rule face up to their guilt?

Yours faithfully,


Canterbury, Kent
