Decision reached 'in principle' for Bamber appeal

A decision's been reached 'in principle' on whether to refer the case of Jeremy Bamber to the Court of Appeal

But the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) won't reveal the decision for a fortnight.

Bamber was found guilty of shooting his wealthy adopted parents, June and Neville, his sister Ms Caffell and her six-year-old twin sons Daniel and Nicholas at their farmhouse in Tolleshunt D'Arcy in 1995.

The 50-year-old, serving a whole life term, has always protested his innocence and claims his schizophrenic sister Sheila Caffell shot her family before turning the gun on herself.

A spokesman for the CCRC said: "The committee considering Mr Bamber's case did meet today(February 1, 2011) and did reach a decision in principle.

"However the process of expressing that decision and the reasons for it could take up to two week and no announcement will be made about the decision until Mr Bamber and his legal team have received the document expressing the decision and the reasons for it ."
