Man Cleared of Murder

A STRANRAER lawyer's six-year battle to clear a man of a murder charge has been won.

And in the process the three-strong team of which Margo Harvey was a key player created legal history.

Almost 50 years ago, Glasgow man Iain Hay Gordon, then a National Serviceman in the Province, was convicted of stabbing to death the daughter of a Northern Ireland judge.

Now, the Appeal Court in Belfast has indicated they will overturn the conviction, with full findings in writing later.

And this week, Margo told the 'Free Press'

"It has been the journey of a lifetime and a privilege to be involved".

She added

"Sometimes, when we have been tired and there have been low points, you think 'How are we going to move forward?' but every time we have had a low point, something has happened and we have always managed to make a breakthrough".
