Wrongful convictions of refugees and asylum seekers by the Criminal Cases Review Commission

Abstract:
Reviews the approach of the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) to handling claims by asylum seekers and refugees that they have been wrongly convicted of illegally entering the UK. Examines the legal principles governing protection for refugees, key aspects of the CCRC's policy, and the evolution of its ability to identify asylum cases. Discusses its wider interaction with other criminal justice agencies and how it might broaden its remit.
