Freshwater Five

In 2010, skipper Jamie Green and his crew went out for a regular fishing trip on the Isle of Wight.

Yet it ultimately ended with them being arrested, tried and convicted for drug smuggling - with five family men receiving a total of 104 years in prison.

Help Jamie and others like him

Investigation by the Centre has now completely undermined the evidence used to convict them, uncovering serious law enforcement misconduct in the process.
