Submission to the review of Part Eight of the Crimes (Appeal and Review) Act 2001 - May 2012

The legislation as presently embodied in Part 8 Crimes (Repeal and Review) Act 2001 (the Act) is contrary to the common law as it has developed over generations of cases here, in England and other common law countries. It is also in contravention of Article 14(7) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. NSWCCL proposes that the legislation be repealed.
