Product description

Review

'Michael Naughton's timely and authoritative book comprehensively destroys the myth that the central mission of the CCRC is to correct wrongful convictions of the innocent.' Professor Mike McConville, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

'This is a timely and provocative volume, which draws attention to the limitations of Criminal Cases Review Commission and similar institutions. .. It ought to act as a useful antidote to any sense of complacency on the part of those responsible for rectifying such miscarriages.' - Professor Peter Duff, former member of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission

'The CCRC is an extremely important experiment - a government institution dedicated to investigating miscarriages of justice - that jurists all across the world are following with profound interest. Michael Naughton's thorough and insightful book raises critical issues the CCRC must address, especially the apparent tendency to elevate concerns about procedure above the CCRC's core mission to find a best approximation of the truth and fairness in an individual's case."  - Barry Scheck, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Innocence Project, USA

'The Criminal Cases Review Commission: Hope for the Innocent? is a must read for any person with a serious interest in understanding what approaches may and may not work to help with overturning the conviction of innocent persons.'
- Hans Sherrer, Justice Denied blog

'The book presents a strong and passionate prosecution case against the CCRC.'
- Duncan Campbell, The Guardian

'The book may completely change the reader's perception of the CCRC via a thorough exploration of the entire organisation, its history, objectives and apparent failings. [...] Overall, the book provides a significant insight into the work of the CCRC.' - The Howard Journal

Book Description

This book focuses on the world's first publicly-funded body to review alleged miscarriages of justice, revealing that its help to innocent victims of wrongful conviction is merely incidental.
