The case against the Birmingham Six collapsed, as their conviction was found to be "unsafe and unsatisfactory" by the DPP in London. Hugh Callaghan of the Birmingham Six speaks to Pat Kenny about the latest development.
Speaking to Hugh Callaghan who is still in custody at Long Lartin Prison in Worcestershire, Pat Kenny says,
At last you have been vindicated
If I had to live with bitterness over the years I wouldn't have been able to cope.
Commenting on his fellow prisoners, Callaghan claims they have all known for years that the Birmingham Six were innocent. He is looking forward to having his day at the Old Bailey and leaving a free man, but says that he will not be wearing a Charles Haughey suit.
This episode of the 'Pat Kenny Show' was broadcast on 25 February 1991.
Patrick Joseph Hill, Hugh Callaghan, Gerard Hunter, Richard McIlkenny, John Walker and William Power were sentenced to life imprisonment in 1975 accused of the Birmingham pub bombings. After 16 years in prison their convictions were quashed by the Court of Appeal in 1991.
