TOPIC: CCRC - another case represented by my solicitor.

CCRC - another case represented by my solicitor. 1 Week, 6 Days ago  
CCRC Chairman Helen Pitcher said: “This case is a good example of why the CCRC is such an important part of our Criminal Justice System. New information has come to light, years after Mr Balasubramaniam’s trial which now calls into the question the safety of his conviction. We’ve carried out a thorough, independent review of the case and decided that it needs to be looked at again by the Court of Appeal.”


I would say that when new evidence has emerged that Surrey Police deliberately withheld evidence from the defence regarding the innocence of Jonathan King, there should be at very least a referral back to the Court of Appeal. 2022.

Re:CCRC - another case represented by my solicitor. 1 Week, 5 Days ago  
Following several appeals and re-trials, the Court of Appeal quashed the convictions of all but one of Mr Balasubramaniam’s co-defendants in 2011. During those proceedings new information came to light, including an undisclosed “deal” with the prosecution, which called into question this witness’s credibility.

The CCRC was contacted by Mr Balasubramaniam in April 2019. Following a detailed review of his case, the CCRC has decided that there is a real possibility that the Court of Appeal will now quash his conviction because this witness can no longer be regarded as credible.
