    Stephen Ward was Innocent, OK

    By Geoffrey Robertson QC (Biteback) In 1961, a fashionable British osteopath, Steven Ward, introduced the then British Secretary for War, John Profumo to the showgirl Christine Keeler. The relationship was to spawn the Profumo Affair which brought down Prime Minister Harold MacMillan and the following year, the entire Labour Government. For his trouble, Ward was framed by the police on "vice" charges and he died in suspicious circumstance in August 1963. In his book, Steven Ward was Innocent OK, Geoffrey Robertson QC says that the affair remains the worst unrectified miscarriage of justice in modern British history.
