This month we have also been contacted by the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) who may be able to challenge wrongful criminal convictions of detainees.
1. If your detainee was an asylum seeker or refugee who was convicted of having no passport or a false passport or entering the UK using deception they may be able to challenge the sentence and/or conviction.
2. Also, if your detainee was a victim of human trafficking and was convicted of an offence that someone else made them commit or they felt forced to commit then the Criminal Cases Review Commission may be able to help.
Contact details for both the CCRC and the solicitor challenging detention of Iranian asylum seekers are available from us at the office.
