UK: Scottish group wants pardon for Witches

It seems that witchcraft has been in the news a lot lately. There was the scandle over Miss Canada Plus being a Witch, the recent condemning of a Saudi women for "practicing witchcraft" and, now in the UK a group is trying to get pardons issued for Witches who were jailed in the UK under the Witchcraft Law of 1735. The law continued to convict people for the practice of witchcraft -- and things mistaken as such -- until 1951 when it was repealed. The group wishes a pardon for some 4000 people who have all passed on who were charged under the law.
