Re Anderson-Burrowes (application under para 3 of Sch 22 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003)

Sentence – Mandatory life sentence. The defendant sought review of the minimum term of 11 years' imprisonment imposed on him for murder. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that all of the evidence showed overwhelmingly that the defendant had made exceptional and unforeseen progress since he had been sentenced, which called for reconsideration of his minimum term. Accordingly, the defendant's tariff would be reduced to nine years and nine months, less time spent on remand.
