CCRC case statistics

The CCRC started work in April 1997. Between then and 31st December 2017 it has:

  • Referred 636 cases
  • Of the 629 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 421 appeals have been allowed and 195 dismissed*
  • 766 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 242 are awaiting review

So far we have received a total of 23,150 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 22,141cases.

*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.
