The CCRC started work in April 1997. Between then and the end of June 2019 it has:
- Referred 664 cases
- Of the 657 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 441 appeals have been allowed and 203 dismissed*
- 664 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 145 are awaiting review
So far we have received a total of 25,256 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 24,446 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.
