CAGE will premiere a gripping short documentary: The Birmingham 4: A Grave Miscarriage of Justice on Monday 20 March 2023, exclusively in Leicester.

Inspired by a conversation with renowned solicitor Gareth Peirce, former Guantanamo prisoner Moazzam Begg investigates the case of four Muslim men sentenced to life in prison. Set in Birmingham, The Birmingham 4: A Grave Miscarriage of Justice follows the harrowing story of Naweed Ali, Khobaib Hussain, Mohibur Rahman and Tahir Aziz, accused of preparing a grisly attack on British soil.

Their dramatic arrest in 2016, complete with the evacuation of an area in the city centre, a bomb-disposal unit and a media frenzy, ultimately led to their conviction and sentencing.

But things are not always as they seem…

Moazzam Begg takes the viewers inside the dark world of undercover policing, and explores how the four Muslim men fell prey to a sting operation mounted by the West Midlands Police. 

This short documentary is a riveting look into allegations of police corruption, false evidence, perjury and miscarriage of justice. It reveals disturbing similarities to the infamous case of the Irish Birmingham 6, convicted for crimes they didn't commit in the 70’s.

Live Panel Discussion and Q&A:

Following the film screening, Human Rights Solicitor Fahad Ansari will host a discussion with CAGE’s outreach director, and former Guantanamo prisoner Moazzam Begg, Stephen Kamlish KC, barrister at Gardens Court Chambers and Mariam Hussain, sister of Khobaib Hussain, one of the Birmingham 4, currently serving a life sentence.
