Commissioners of the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) wanted:

The CCRC’s role is to investigate and review cases where it is alleged that a miscarriage of justice may have occurred in relation to conviction, sentence or both. The CCRC is entrusted with the exercise of wide-ranging, and sometimes intrusive, statutory powers. Commissioners are supported by senior managers, legal and investigations advisers, casework and administrative staff. Investigations are mainly carried out by CCRC staff but CCRC can require others, such as the police, to carry out investigations on its behalf.

Commissioners make casework decisions. This may be as part of a committee of three commissioners (where, for example, consideration is being given to referring a case back to the appeal courts) or more regularly individually, where case working staff, having reviewed and investigated a case, consider that a referral may not be appropriate. Commissioners may also be asked to become involved in the most complex of CCRC cases right at the start where they may decide what investigations staff (or others) will carry out on behalf of the CCRC. The majority of a Commissioner’s time will be focussed on taking decisions in respect of individual cases on his or her own.   Continue reading
