Latest News From the CCRC

The CCRC announced in press releases yesterday that they would be closing the deadline for submissions on the 9th of December as planned. This does not however mean that the case is closed as we had previously thought. Submissions have been prepared for the CCRC by the Defence but they are not fully complete and therefore have not been submitted owing to the CCRC's request that the Defence make one entire submission and not submit evidence piecemeal.

The CCRC have confirmed that they will possibly take months to carry out their decision making process, (how they can make decisions on material which has not been submitted remains to be seen). They confirmed that if any major pieces of evidence were submitted after the closure of the deadline, then they could possibly take those into consideration, this news surfaced after further correspondence with Defence lawyers yesterday. The CCRC have made no indication as to whether they will disclose original event and scene logs for ESDA testing, despite additional requests being submitted to them back in July this year following many years of requests for the same documentation which have been ignored.
