I am not surprised at this.  Nothing the campaign team have presented comes close to being grounds for a fresh appeal.  The problem is that he will have difficulties in securing his release on licence after the minimum 25 year tarrif if he continues to protest his innocence.  He should face up to what he has done and complete his prison courses.   That will give him the best chance of being reunited with his family at the earliest date.

Why is that I wonder?

Not to worry, I found this:

"Justice for Michael Ross says its belief that the journal could be a vital piece of evidence was among its concerns about Ross’s conviction detailed in submissions to the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC), which investigates possible miscarriages of justice.

But the supporters have hit out at the Commission for dismissing the diary as “dead end” in its rejection of Ross’s bid for a new appeal.

The campaign group has posted an open letter, criticising that finding and other aspects of the justice watchdogs’ investigation, on the website.

RACIST killer Michael Ross has broken a 19-year silence over his assassination of an Indian waiter on Orkney.

The Army sniper showed no sympathy for Shamsuddin Mahmood but instead bleated he was the real victim.

Ross, 34, was just 15 when, wearing a balaclava, he strode into a curry ­restaurant in Kirkwall, in 1994, and gunned down Shamsuddin, 26.

Now serving at least 25 years of a life sentence, the ex-Black Watch ­sergeant showed no remorse for the motiveless murder.

He also revealed a plot to escape, armed with ­explosives and a machine gun, after his guilty verdict in October 2008.

Ross bolted from the dock but was tackled by an official yards from freedom. A hired car packed with guns was found in a nearby Tesco car park.

In a letter from prison, Ross admitted smuggling a Skorpion machine gun from Kosovo – which he hid for seven years.

The gun – plus 545 rounds of ammo, a grenade, smoke bombs, knives, air rifle and camouflage gear – were in the car.

It was feared that Ross planned to stage a killing spree. But in his letter he said: “The ­military side of me was thinking that I needed another option other than just rely on people I don’t know.

“So I thought, if it looks bad in the last week of my trial, I will just go and live in the hills in the Highlands and just live off the land. I did all the planning on my own – my wife didn’t know ­anything about it.

“I had done a few survival exercises in the army and a little ‘conduct after ­capture’ training on my sniper section commander’s course. I did have some army rations in my kit for ­emergencies but it wouldn’t have lasted long.

“In my kit I had a sleeping bag, bivvy bag, poncho and a roll mat for sleeping and shelter. I had boots, camouflage army uniform for hunting, fleece, waterproofs and some civilian clothes.

“I had cooking pots, condiments like salt, pepper and curry powders, also tea, coffee and sugar.

“I had several knives for skinning and cutting game and an axe to build ­shelters. I had an air rifle for hunting small game like rabbits, pigeons and pheasants.

“The Skorpion machine pistol I had was for hunting bigger game like roe deer. I know a lot of people will probably think‚ ‘Yeah, right, a machine pistol for ­hunting, pull the other one’.

“I got the Skorpion when I was in Kosovo. We had been doing searches and I found it.

“I know I should not have taken it and I know it was illegal to have it in Britain but I thought, ‘Well, I’m not going to be using it for doing bad things like armed ­robbery or ­threatening and hurting people’.

“I had the ­Skorpion for about seven years, so the people who think I’m some kind of racist ­murderer‚ why was there no crime ­committed with it?

“When the verdict came back guilty, I just panicked and thought, ‘F*** it’.

“When I was caught, I could have fought and I could have got away but that’s not what I had planned.”

Shamsuddin was serving ­diners when he was shot in the head by Ross.

The following year, 16-year-old Ross joined the Army and served in Iraq.

It wasn’t until 2006 that a witness told police he saw Ross in a Kirkwall ­public toilet just before the murder.

In 2007, Ross’s policeman dad Eddie was jailed for four years for perverting the course of justice.

Trial judge Lord Hardie told Ross: “This was a vicious, evil, unprovoked murder of a defenceless man.”

After the guilty verdict at the High Court in Glasgow, the car with his equipment was found at a Tesco in the city’s Sighthill. Ross refused to give ­evidence and has never spoken of the crime. But in his letter to a friend, he expresses no remorse for his crime.

In his self-pitying letter, the dad-of-two said: “During my trial, my future and the future of my children and wife was in the hands of other people. People who had their own agendas.

“The uncertainty of the unknown of what the outcome of the trial would be played on my mind.

“Would my children have their dad there to help bring them up, to give them support and encouragement, to give them a cuddle when they fall and hurt a knee?

“Would my wife have her husband to help provide for her and our family and to support her through the hardships of life? It was like I was planning for my own death and that I would no longer exist.”

A further letter http://www.j4mr.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Michaels-Letter-to-his-Supporters-April-2014.pdf


In this letter http://www.j4mr.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/The-Escape-Attempt-Letter-June-2013.pdf MR talks about fighting it out in court yet he says elsewhere he decided not to give evidence during his trial through fear of cross examination.

Why would he choose to pack up his car and run away, with no thought for his family? He wasn't 15 years old anymore! He was a grown man.

"It was like I was planning for my own death and that I would no longer exist.” the evidence found in his boot says otherwise.. This is the sort of thing someone says in order to gain sympathy.
