14 January 2015

The Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) is an independent body, and as such its effectiveness is not measured by my Department. My officials have a sponsorship role and the CCRC report to the Ministry of Justice on a regular basis; as such I am fully appraised of the performance of the Criminal Cases Review Commission. The CCRC provide an annual report which can be found on their website.
