    Introducing the Seren Subscription
  • The Dossier by Michael O’Brien is a shocking resumé of fifteen miscarriages of justice in south Wales between 1982 and 2016. After being falsely imprisoned for murder, O’Brien was driven to discover more about the many notorious and dubious convictions made in south Wales over a period of thirty years. This is the shocking result of his research. He calls for an independent judicial enquiry into these cases. Available now.
