unstar this property answer text <p>Under Schedule 1 to the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 a coroner may only resume a suspended investigation if they consider that there is sufficient reason to do so. They are unlikely to do so following a criminal trial if the circumstances of the death were established at the trial.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst there is no formal procedure for making such a request, there is no reason why a bereaved family may not ask the coroner to resume a suspended inquest. The decision whether to do so is entirely a matter for the coroner as an independent judicial office holder.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>In April this year, the Secretary of State announced a public consultation on the possible reconsideration of parole decisions. The consultation closed on 28 July and we have considered the responses, including the issue of which types of parole decisions should be in scope for any reconsideration mechanism. We will publish the Government’s response in due course alongside the review of the Parole Board Rules which the Secretary of State committed to undertake this year.</p><p> </p><p>I have enormous sympathy for victims of crime, especially where they have been subject to the types of serious offending that often feature in parole cases. I agree that victims need a way to challenge parole decisions which they believe may be flawed without having to take the onerous step of seeking a judicial review. That is why the Government has proposed the creation of a reconsideration mechanism. We must ensure that any approach is fair and proportionate, and avoids creating unnecessary delays and uncertainty for both prisoners and victims.</p>
