Nearly a year-and-a-half after the law passed, not one case has been heard by Cayman’s Expungement Board.
The Criminal Records (Spent Convictions) Law allows for some people convicted of minor crimes to have those offences wiped from their records.
The law passed in the Legislative Assembly in 2016. In November of last year, the board announced it was ready to receive applications. Parts of the law governing the board went into effect more than three months ago.
A freedom of information request reveals that there have not been any cases heard by the expungement board.
