The Applicant applied for criminal injuries compensation under the 2008 Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme in May 2010 in respect of a crime of violence (an assault) against him in December 2009 in which he suffered criminal injuries. CICA’s refusal to make an award was based on several grounds, including the Applicant’s failure to cooperate with the police to bring his assailant to justice (paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Scheme), and his questionable character as evidenced by his criminal convictions and the CICA’s view that he was dishonestly claiming/receiving of Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
