CCRC case statistics

The CCRC started work in April 1997. Between then and the end of March 2018 it has:

  • Referred 650 cases
  • Of the 630 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 422 appeals have been allowed and 195 dismissed*
  • 673 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 213 are awaiting review

So far we have received a total of 23,516 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 22,629 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.
