Fifth Estate: The Autopsy – Part 2: What did justice cover up?

21/01/2020

Canadian documentary looking at possible miscarriages of justice in the Province of Alberta.

This is from recent times.

Eight years ago, a review of autopsies signalled to Alberta’s Ministry of Justice that it had a big problem on its hands. In Part 1 of The Autopsy, The Fifth Estate revealed how an expert pathologist review shook the foundations of murder cases in Alberta and that the provincial government kept that information secret for nearly a decade.
In Part 2, The Fifth Estate tells the inside story of how senior Alberta government officials ultimately abandoned their probe into miscarriages of justice while prisoners were left to serve out their time. The months-long investigation reveals additional questionable cases that Alberta Justice kept under wraps and examines who knew what and when.
