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 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, discontinue proceedings or offer no evidence in a case please click here. 

 If you would like to request a review of a decision you can contact us via email at: NorthEastVRRandcomplaints@cps.gsi.gov.uk 

or write to us at:

Victims' Right to Review, CPS North East, St Ann's Quay, 122 Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3BD

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