A British businessman who has been in a Florida prison cell for the past 28 years – 15 of them on death row – will have a last chance to prove his innocence at an evidentiary hearing into his double murder conviction that opens in a Miami court on Monday.
Krishna, known as Kris, Maharaj will appear on Monday morning before Florida’s 11th circuit court, in a last-ditch attempt to prove that he has been the victim of a gross miscarriage of justice.
His lawyers expect to call up to eight witnesses and present the court with 50 documents that will in their submission conclusively show that he was framed for the murders and that his prosecution was at best deeply flawed and at worst blatantly corrupt.
