The Criminal Injuries Compensation Tribunal administers the Scheme of Compensation for Personal Injuries Criminally Inflicted. Under the Terms of the Scheme, the Tribunal is entirely independent in the matter of individual decisions on applications for compensation.

However, to be of assistance to the Deputy, I have had enquiries made with the Tribunal and I understand that on 16 March 2016 the Tribunal wrote to the applicant's legal representative requesting clarification on a number of issues. No reply was received. On 20 March 2019 a reminder letter was forwarded to the legal representative. No reply has been received to date.

If the applicant contacts the Tribunal directly they can discuss the information which needs to be clarified in order to progress this application.
