Auckland
Convicted double murderer Mark Lundy has released a series of handwritten letters from jail proclaiming his innocence ahead of his appeal.
Lundy was in 2015 convicted for the second time and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murders of wife Christine and seven-year-old daughter Amber in 2000 after his original conviction was quashed by the Privy Council.
He is due to appear in the Court of Appeal in October to argue his innocence.
Now a series of notes from Lundy has been released on website Factual Trust, an acronym for For Amber and Christine: Truth Uncovered About Lundys.
Dated July and early August, the handwritten letters lay out a series of complaints about the prosecution case against Lundy, including what he called “ambiguous” information given to his defence team by the Crown.
Each letter is signed “Yours in Innocence, Mark Lundy” and addressed “to all”.
In the earliest letter, dated July 19, Lundy said he respected the jury’s “opinion” by disagreed with their verdict and argues he “could not commit such a heinous crime”.
“It is wrong and as a believer in the truth I will always fight against it. Any innocent man must,” he said. NZN
