The New Zealand Criminal Cases Review Commission is a distinctively New Zealand approach to addressing potential miscarriages of justice.

Their role is to review potential miscarriage of justice cases and refer appropriate cases back to an appeal court.

If a person convicted of a criminal offence believes they have been wrongly convicted or sentenced, they can apply to have their conviction, sentence, or both reviewed. Their Commissioners will review the case and decide whether a referral should be made.

The New Zealand Criminal Cases Review Commission is an independent Crown entity that employs specialist staff to investigate possible miscarriage of justice cases.
