CCRC update in relation to the Ched Evans case 16 September 2015

As has been widely reported, the Commission confirms that the case of Ched Evans was considered yesterday by a Committee of three Commissioners, in accordance with our statutory role. The Committee decided that further investigation was needed before it meets again to make a final decision on whether or not to refer Mr Evans’ conviction back to the Court of Appeal. There is no date yet for that next meeting.
