Miscarriages of Justice Organisation

Miscarriages of Justice Organisation

The Miscarriage of Justice Organization (MOJO) is a charity dedicated to human rights and to changing the criminal justice system in order to reduce the number of miscarriages of criminal justice and increase the level of professional after-care for victims.

After his conviction was overturned and his incarceration ended, Patrick Hill, one of the so-called Birmingham Six, set out to assist people who claim to have been wrongfully convicted. The Miscarriage of Justice Organisation is a voluntary sector non profit making organisation and a registered charity.
