Notes for Editors
The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission was established as an independent body on
1 April 1999 to review alleged miscarriages of justice in Scottish convictions and/or
sentences. Under section 194 A to L of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 (as
inserted by section 25 of the Crime and Punishment (Scotland) Act 1997) the Commission
can refer a case to the High Court if it believes that a miscarriage of justice may have
occurred and that it is in the interests of justice that a reference should be made. Once a case
is referred to the High Court by the Commission, it will proceed as a normal appeal.
The Commission operates with a Board of 8 Members, one of whom is the Chairman, a Chief
Executive, a Director of Administration, 2 Senior Legal Officers, 10 Legal Officers and
administrative support staff.
The Commission will disclose the fact that a case has been referred. However, as the
Commission operates under strict statutory non-disclosure provisions, it is not possible for
the Commission to disclose any further information about such cases. The Commission will
not release any information regarding cases in which no referral has been made or in respect
of cases under review.
For any further general information about the Commission please contact
Mrs Jackie Bergen, Director of Administration, SCCRC, 5th Floor Portland House,
17 Renfield Street, Glasgow, Tel: 0141 270 7031, e-mail: or visit the
Commission’s website at
