Being convicted for a crime you did not commit, might be the worst thing that can happen to a person.
When you have been convicted by the highest court, but you are innocent, a review procedure is your last chance to get justice. However, the criteria that must be met before a case is reopened, is very strict. There must be a new fact or new evidence that is so crucial that there is a serious suspicion that the judge would have ruled differently if it had been known at the time of the conviction.
To find a new fact or new evidence, it is generally required to conduct a new investigation by experts. As science continues to evolve, expert insights can change over time. Therefore, the innocence of a convicted person can sometimes be proven years after that person has been convicted.
Expert investigations are time-consuming and expensive. The convicted person has to bear these costs and cannot request the government to financially support them.
The Ina Post Foundation believes that everyone who believes to be wrongfully convicted, should be given the opportunity to prove their innocence. By offering financial support for new expert investigations, the Ina Post Foundation contributes to a more just world.
After her acquittal in 2010, Ina Post founded the Ina Post Foundation to help the wrongfully convicted in the Netherlands during their fight for justice.
