The CCRC is being investigated by the All All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Miscarriage of Justice to see whether they are providing a proper service in forwarding/not forwarding cases to the Royal Courts of Justice (RCJ) for assessment. if they think there is a real possibility that they (the RCJ) will quash that conviction or change the sentence. If the CCRC refer a case it means that there must be an appeal. It is then the court’s job to arrange and hear the appeal and decide whether or not to quash a conviction or change a sentence.
