Ched Evans: Is the CCRC improving its performance or prioritising cases?

 

A surprisingly speedy investigation was carried out by the CCRC in the case of a footballer Ched Evans, whose case was referred back to the Court of Appeal after only ten months long investigation, Robins, J. has said. Eddie Gilfoyle case, on the other hand, is more than four years in the investigation.

Richard Foster, chair of the CCRC, denies prioritising cases based on anything but evidence, applicant’s location (either in or out of prison) and health conditions. Mr Foster also brings up the never ending subject of CCRC’s lack of funding and is looking into its solutions.

Is the case of Ched Evans a one-time boost or is it the future of the CCRC investigations? Only time will show us!
