Te Kāhui Tātari Ture | Criminal Cases Review Commission (Te Kāhui) is committed to being accessible and responsive to all people seeking assistance to get an independent review of their criminal sentence and/or conviction.

At the same time the success of our operation depends on:

  • our ability to do our work and perform our functions in the most effective and efficient ways possible
  • the health, safety, wellbeing, and security of our staff
  • our ability to allocate our resources fairly across all applications that we receive.

In a very small number of applications, the behaviour of applicants can become unreasonable, vexatious, or abusive and can have a disproportionate and unreasonable impact on our staff, services, time or resources.

When this happens, Te Kāhui will take action to manage any conduct that negatively and unreasonably impacts on the organisation, its staff or ability to allocate resources fairly across all the applications that we receive.

Note the measures outlined are aligned with the following legislation:

  • Employment Relations Act 2000
  • Harassment Act 1997
  • Health and Safety at Work Act 2015
  • Human Rights Act 1993
  • Privacy Act 1993.
