Courts and expunging criminal records outside our jurisdiction

Informal Resolution | 25 July 2022

A complaint was filed against the RCIPS and the ODPP for allegedly inaccurately processing personal data relating to the complainant's criminal record. The complainant sought to have his criminal record expunged.

We decided not to support the complaint, as the Ombudsman does not have jurisdiction to overturn court rulings or expunge criminal records.
