Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association (JENGbA)
Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association (JENGbA) is a grassroots campaign, run by volunteers. As with all grassroots campaigns the work behind opposing the might of the legal establishment has been an uphill battle. It was a role taken on mainly by women (mothers, sisters, aunties and cousins but also heartbroken dads and uncles) who will not rest while their loved ones are serving mandatory life sentences for crimes committed by others. JENGbA was created by the legal establishment, it was not a campaign that came out of nowhere; it was precisely because the use of joint enterprise was unjust, unfair and discriminatory towards working class and BAME communities that they were forced to form JENGbA
Since JENGbA’s official launch in 2010 to address the wrongful convictions of hundreds of innocent people we have campaigned tirelessly to have our voices and the voices of prisoners heard.
They have lobbied and cajoled MP’s, policy makers, media commentators, the Justice Select Committee, academics and ultimately the Supreme Court.See more
