By far the greatest miscarriage of justice I have heard of in any country even approximating a democracy. A man in the Philippines is falsely accused and convicted of a crime that he not only did not commit, but was absolutely impossible for him to commit. Not only did he have dozens of witnesses, photographs, two proctored exams, and a security guard's sign-in sheet proving he was in Manila and therefore 320 miles away from the crime in Cebu, the prosecution had no motive, physical evidence, and may have even misidentified the body. After he was imprisoned for over a year the police present testimony from a career criminal that was extracted under torture and with total immunity and a cash payment. The judge, among other things, not only denied defense attorneys the ability to cross-examine the witness but imprisoned them all for contempt. When the life sentence was appealed to the Supreme Court, the only miscarriage of justice they could find was that he did not receive the death penalty, which they immediately remedied by imposing. An absolutely astounding combination of corruption and incompetence.
