Hope for the Innocent ?

Recently a Book was published by Palgrave Macmillan and edited by Dr Michael Naughton of Bristol University . The book collected key participants and commentators on miscarriage of justice and was a critique of the development and progress of the Criminal Cases Review Commission . The commission have understandably been hostile to the work however the book has been generally well  received and it should be a matter of concern that common themes have been identified demonstrating some key trends and limitations developing in the work of the commission . The real test will now be whether the commission as it often says can take on board constructive criticism and use it as a spring board to turn things around before it is too late .
