CCRC case statistics

The CCRC started work in April 1997. Between then and 30th September 2017 it has:

  • Referred 634 cases
  • Of the 627 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 419 appeals have been allowed and 195 dismissed*
  • 703 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 340 are awaiting review

So far we have received a total of 22,824 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 21,780 cases.

*The difference between the total number of CCRC referrals heard by the appeal courts and the number of outcomes recorded is accounted for by cases where the appeal proceedings have been heard but the judgement is awaited and a number of cases that were referred by the CCRC but the appeal was abandoned.
