We're waiting for Mr Justice UK to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Criminal Cases Review Commission,

Reference: Information request to the CCRC in the public interest.

Given that I am without doubt acting in the public interest and how vital it is that the CCRC works fairly and correctly and also is seen to be acting fairly and correctly please supply all the documents that were sent to Panorama by the CCRC [see the Panorama link below and the quotes from the programme] especially the ones that directly relates to quotes that I have taken straight from the Panorama programme below. Also please supply the documents generated by the Panorama Programme, solicitors and the newspapers in relation to Problems with the CCRC both before and especially after the programme. I would also like to see any information that you hold in regards to negative comments about the CCRC and any problems with the CCRC.
Please supply any information that the CCRC hold in relation to the CCRC not referring cases to the Appeal Court due to the CCRC being influenced by comments made by the Appeal Court about the CCRC referring cases to Appeal Court.

In the last 5 years what percentages of cases were referred to the Appeal Court and what percentages of cases were successful in the Appeal Court?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0...
I will now quote from the totally independent Panorama Programme.
Glyn Maddock and Expert solicitor on appeals has stated on Panorama Programme the 90 employees with 5 million each annually, ‘The CCRC is now being over whelped. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that lots people who have suffered a miscarriage of Justice are not having their cases referred back to the Appeal Court’.
From another expert solicitor on appeals with tears in his eyes he said the CCRC is ‘Moribund, desk bound, file bound and not fit for the purpose’.

From a CCRC board meeting, ‘case review mangers are struggling to cope with 24 cases per case manager’.
From ‘the CCRC minutes a senior staff member who was also a commissioner of the CCRC doubted whether the work enquired to uncover certain miscarriages of justice were now being done’.
In 2015 the CCRC minutes REVEAL THE Commission was warried about a culture of were the staff believe that finding new evidence was actually seen as troublesome because of the work involved.
Sir Anthony Hooper Lord Justice of the Appeal Court also confirms that CCRC is denying people justice [‘the test the CCRC is a plying is wrong’]

The most experienced person in the UK on miscarriages of justice and who once worked for the CCRC David Jessel said it is never been harder for an innocent man to prove their innocence. ‘I cannot help feeling that in the years I have been interested in this area it is as hard for an innocent man to have his case referred to the Appeal Court and have his conviction overturned as it has ever been’ I would invite you to actual read all of my evidence and do an investigation into my case and not just a token gesture that has occurred in my case so far.

Given the position that the CCRC holds in our society and its responsibility to society and the victims of miscarriages of justice it is vital that the CCRC is transparent and accountable especially in the light of the damming criticism of the CCRC by the totally independent BBC Panorama Programme, newspapers and solicitors.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Justice UK

Dear Criminal Cases Review Commission,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Criminal Cases Review Commission's handling of my FOI request 'Criminal Review Commission'.

[The CCRC must have the information requested as the information was shown on the Panorama Programme, and the CCRC must have the records and information requested requested ]

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Mr Justice UK

DPO, Criminal Cases Review Commission

Mr Justice uk,

 

I write in response to your e-mail dated 28^th July (reproduced below). 
You express dissatisfaction in relation to the CCRC’s response to your
request under the Freedom of information Act 2000, and ask that we carry
out an internal review of our response.  I respond as a member of the
Information team that had no involvement in the original reply.

 

The purpose of my review is to independently establish whether a request
for information was treated properly, thoroughly, and in accordance with
the relevant Act.

 

We wrote to you on 25^th July 2018 stating:

 

Dear Mr Justice UK,

 

Further to your request for information to the Criminal Cases Review
Commission (CCRC) of 15 July 2018, we need further information from you in
order to address your request.

 

As you may be aware, section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FOIA) sets out that applicants are required to provide their name and an
address when requesting information.  Where we believe there to be a doubt
over the name provided, this can render the request invalid.

 

To ensure that we have your correct details and can therefore process your
request, please provide your real name rather than a pseudonym to the
following address:

 

Criminal Cases Review Commission

Or alternatively, by email to: [email address]

 

Once we have received this, we will be able to continue with your
request.  If we do not hear from you within 20 working days of the date of
this email we will assume that you no longer require the information and
withdraw your request.

 

 

I am afraid that I can identify no error in this response.

 

For a request to be valid, the requester must provide their real name to
give anyone reading that request a reasonable indication of their
identity. The absence of a real name or use of a pseudonym makes the
request invalid under Section 8(1)(b). Even requests made through the
whatdotheyknow.com website will only be valid where the requester has
supplied their real name and contact details. 

 

To ensure that the CCRC is dealing with a valid request, and can properly
and legally process it, it is open to you to provide evidence of your name
in the form of valid identification such as your driving licence,
passport, utility bill etc.  Once this is received the CCRC will process
your request within the necessary framework prescribed within the Act.  20
working days from our e-mail is 22^nd August. If no confirmation of your
full name has been received by this date we will, as previously explained,
assume that you no longer require the information, and your request will
be closed.

 

For further information, guidance in relation to the use of pseudonyms and
an organisations’ obligations can be found on the ICO’s website.

 

Kind regards

 

Information Team

CCRC
