Kenneth Noye

Noye was involved in laundering the proceeds of the Brink's Mat robbery in 1983/4. While he was being investigated for his part in the robbery, he stabbed to death police officer John Fordham who was observing Noye from the grounds of his home. Noye was acquitted of murder on the grounds of self defence, but was sentenced to 14 years in prison in 1986 for handling stolen gold. He was released from prison in 1994, having served 8 years of his sentence.

In1996, Noye stabbed and killed 22-year-old motorist Stephen Cameron in a road rage incident on the M25 motorway. Noye immediately fled the country, sparking a massive police hunt. In 1998 he was tracked down in Spain, and extradicted. At his trial in 2000, he again pleaded self-defence. This time found guilty, he was convicted of murder and given a life sentence.

He has unsucessfully tried to appeal his case and also tried to have his sentence reduced. He is now appealing yet again and trying to refute the pathologists evidence.

We sincerely hope will be rejected and this piece of **** will be left to rot in prison, deservedly unforgiven.
