Long term animal rights campaigner Mel Broughton has had his conviction for 'conspiracy to commit arson' quashed.

However, he remains in prison and now faces a re-trial. This will make it the third time that Mel has stood trial for the same offences, which are alleged to be connected to the SPEAK campaign against Oxford University's animal laboratory.

It has become clear that Thames Valley Police are pursuing a political vendetta against Mel after they were caught on tape saying they would be 'waging a dirty war' against him - 'persecute him'. (see SchNEWS 590)
