Victims' Right to Review

The CPS has launched a new initiative called the Victims' Right to Review Scheme, which makes it easier for victims to seek a review of a CPS decision not to bring charges against a suspect or to terminate proceedings.

If you are a victim seeking to exercise your right to request a review of a CPS decision not to bring charges against a suspect, discontinue proceedings or offer no evidence in a case please visit the Victims and Witnesses section of this website.

Please note that the scheme applies only in relation to qualifying decisions made on or after the 5 June 2013.
