Was the conviction appealed to the High Court?
If SCCRC have taken up the case they have an obligation to investigate to see if a possible miscarriage of justice has taken place. If there is evidence available which is relevant then they have the power, but not an obligation, to obtain it from any person or obligation. If they are refusing to request certain evidence then you must find out why that is in the first instance.
