What happens if the inspection recommendations are not addressed/acted upon?
CJI always revisits its inspection topics 18 months to two years after the inspection report is published. This enables the Inspectorate to assess whether its recommendations have been acted upon. If Inspectors found there was no will within the organisation concerned to address its recommendations, CJI would make this public via its action plan review/inspection follow up review and bring it to the attention of senior management. Should CJI be unable to secure a commitment towards improvement from management, CJI could if required bring this issue to the attention of the Minister for Criminal Justice or the Criminal Justice Board.
