CCRC case statistics

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

  • Referred 632 cases
  • Of the 626 cases where appeals have been heard by the courts, 419 appeals have been allowed and 193 dismissed*
  • 621 cases are currently under review at the Commission and 351 are awaiting review

So far we have received a total of 22,544 applications (including all ineligible cases) and completed 21,573 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.
