His case was one of the most notorious miscarriages of justice in English legal history.Conlon's autobiography Proved Innocent was adapted into the Oscar and BAFTA Award-nominated 1993 film In The Name of the Father. Here he speaks to Cageprisoners' patron Yvonne Ridley about why he's fighting for Shaker Aamer, the last British resident in Guantanamo
