Inquiry status: concluded.
The Justice Committee took oral evidence (PDF 193 KB) from the Criminal Cases Review Commission on its work on 14 January 2014. Following that it sought comments on the work of the CCRC from certain academics and lawyers, and then offered the CCRC a chance to respond to those comments.
The Committee now proposes to follow up this subject by holding a short inquiry into the work of the Criminal Cases Review Commission. It would therefore welcome written submissions on the work and effectiveness of the CCRC. These submissions may address any aspect of the CCRC’s work, but those making submissions should note that the Justice Committee may not examine or consider individual cases which are currently before the Commission or the courts.
