ACHIEVEMENTS //

Innocence Network UK (INUK)’s major achievements include:

1) Innocence Network UK (INUK) resurrected a domestic interest and concern for alleged victims of wrongful convictions that was lost when JUSTICE ceased working on alleged miscarriages of justice on the mistaken belief that the setting up of the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) was the panacea to the problem of wrongful convictions.

2) 36 innocence projects were set up in universities and one in a corporate law firm under the auspices of Innocence Network UK (INUK) to provide pro bono investigations into alleged wrongful convictions.

3) Over 100 eligible cases were referred to member innocence projects for further investigation by Innocence Network UK (INUK), i.e. the applicant may be innocent and there is something that can be done to determine whether they are innocent or not.

4) Numerous cases referred by INUK to its member innocence projects submitted to the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) and/or to the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC).

5) In December 2014, Innocence Network UK (INUK) model further validated when Dwaine George’s conviction for murder became the first  innocence project case overturned in the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) following an Innocence Network UK (INUK) referral to a member innocence project (Cardiff Law School Innocence Project) to follow up on identified lines of further investigation.
