The new independent body tasked with looking at suspected wrongful convictions will be headed by Colin Carruthers QC.

As chief commissioner of the Criminal Cases Review Commission, Carruthers will be assisted by an establishment advisory group that will include legal heavyweight Nigel Hampton QC and former detective Tim McKinnel, who successfully fought for compensation for the wrongfully imprisoned Teina Pora.

The commission was part of the Labour-New Zealand First coalition deal, and the appointments were announced today by Justice Minister Andrew Little and New Zealand First justice spokesman Darroch Ball.
