The second issue of Proof magazine is out on January 9, 2017 – however if you order before Tuesday December 20, we can send the magazine hot off the presses in time for Christmas. Hidden: the limits of open justice features new articles from Bob Woffinden, David James Smith, David Rose, Eric Allison, Ian Cobain, Louise Shorter and others. It includes a photo-essay by Andy Aitchison,a photographer who has been working prisons for 13 years, as well as the Open Justice Charter drafted by the Centre for Criminal Appeals’ founder Emily Bolton.
