The Criminal Justice Board has commissioned an independent review of the arrangements to deliver justice in serious sexual offence cases. A former Lord Justice of Appeal, the Right Honourable Sir John Gillen, will lead the review supported by an Advisory Panel. The review has been established to consider law, procedure and practice covering the development and progression of cases of alleged serious sexual offences, taking account of experience from recent cases in Northern Ireland and developments in other jurisdictions. The purpose of the Review is to determine whether current arrangements deliver the best outcomes for victims, defendants and justice, and to make recommendations for improvements.
