fifth estate@CBC - Investigate the Nyki Kish Case

Petitioning the fifth estate@CBC
Please investigate the wrongful conviction of Nicole "Nyki" Kish.

CBC's the fifth estate is Canada's premier investigative journalism show and often provokes discussion on important issues at a national level. Supporters of overturning Nyki's wrongful conviction were thrilled at the fifth estate's request to film an interview with Nyki at Grand Valley Prison last year. Sadly the warden denied the fifth estate access despite granting media access to many other incarcerated people. We want to let the fifth estate know that there is tremendous support for an investigative show about Nyki's case even if she will not be allowed to appear on film. We have seen other episodes where the fifth estate has successfully used phone interviews of incarcerated people to further their investigation and we hope you will look at this option in regards to Nyki's case.

Nyki Kish was convicted of the 2nd degree murder of Ross Hammond in Toronto, Ontario on March 1, 2011 after a lengthy, highly publicized Judge alone trial on only circumstantial evidence. Supporters believe that the tunnel vision of the Toronto Police resulted in an innocent woman being charged with murder and that exculpatory evidence was ignored, mishandled, lost or destroyed, including 2 CCTV videotapes of the altercation. This tunnel vision lead to incomplete evidence in the courtroom, severely impacted Nyki's ability to mount a proper defence and to her inexplicable conviction.

“It is terrifying to be continually punished for this crime I did not commit. And it is damning to have to wonder why every night. I am no murderer and my heart is not selfish. If I was responsible for the death of another human being, I would have never plead not guilty. I would never suffer everyone involved this costly pain. This long, mentally diminishing, emotionally incapacitating process, this is the stuff true nightmares are made of. I did not kill Ross Hammond and I wish I had proven myself innocent beyond a reasonable doubt as I am innocent.” – Nicole Kish at her sentencing on April 4, 2011

Don't forget the Nyki Kish Discussion Forum here - it's another thread.

What is the status of any approach to The 5th Estate?
