Lifer Loses Case But Wins New Guidance For All
By Louise Shorter
Lifer Kevin Nunn has lost the latest round of a legal battle at the Supreme Court to force police to hand over exhibits which lawyers believe could clear his name

Describing the Supreme Court judgment as "disappointing", campaigners welcome the new Attorney General's Guideline, set out in the judgment, which directs the police to co-operate with investigations into claims of innocence post-conviction and a new duty on the body which has the power to refer cases back to the Appeal Court, the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC).

Speaking outside the court, James Saunders, representing Mr Nunn, said, "this judgment reverses a position that the CCRC has taken many times when refusing to carry out new scientific tests on the grounds that they are speculative. The CCRC has historically taken the view that, until test results have been obtained, it does not have any fresh evidence that could support a reference to the Court of Appeal, as is its purpose under the Criminal Appeal Act 1995. Without the evidence, the CCRC has felt unable to take up the case. Catch 22." read full article
