CCRC - JUSTIN HAWKINS
The head of communications at the Criminal Cases Review Commission is Justin Hawkins. His job is not as you might think to serve the interests of those that may have been wrongly convicted, but in fact is to seek to keep convictions intact no matter what information might come up to challenge such conviction.
The proof of the pudding is asking the CCRC for copies of documents that are reasonably necessary when reviewing a case. In some cases, Mr Hawkins freely gives out information, when he thinks that such information will not challenge the safety of a conviction. But, the moment that you ask for a transcript where a Crown witness has lied on oath - then the gates of hell close up and the boiling oil is prepared for the parapets to prevent such information seeing the light of day.
That is a strange reaction - you might agree. But where the CCRC have been the subject of a request for a Judicial Review (denied) and may be the subject of a Judicial Review in the future - and they know that they failed to properly investigate matters the first time around - then of course they will do all within their power to hide the fact that in some cases, they do not review a case fully. In that case of course they might well not have bothered and might want to give the Taxpayer a refund for not doing that which they are required by statute to undertake.
According to the High Court, the CCRC are entitled to take a view. What this means in lay terms is that they can do what they like. They can free one person who has good connections and they can subdue another where the Crown wants them to.
Discrimination - yes. Unlawful - yes. But that is the truth of the matter and Justin Hawkins is just as guilty as the person making the false allegation in failing to do his duty, according to Section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006.

ANATOMY OF A STITCH UP - FLOW CHART
Ian McEwan's novel 'Atonement' (fiction) - Jane Roe's 'The System' (based on a true story)
This is a fictional work inspired by a true story, where the names and locations have been changed to protect the identities of the characters. This book reveals flaws in a System, which is geared to gaining convictions, rather than providing support to innocent victims of false allegations, who often spend several years in prison before they are vindicated and sometimes only obtain justice after any prison sentence has been served.
The book offers an insight into several aspects of the British planning and legal systems and shows that once targeted by police or planning officers, anyone can have their lives destroyed as those in authority bring to bear unlimited resources against their victims.
Prosecutors need to be brought into the 21st century, the director of public prosecutions has said, in the clearest statement yet of the need to reform the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
agree, now what about some action?
