Slightly oddly, the MoJ chose Saturday morning to publish the results of its important parole review which sets out plans for a more transparent way of working, rights of appeal and an improved victims' service.
This week also featured the publication of a number of key statistics by which we judge the criminal justice system.
The crime figures for 2017 were published from which we found that while crime levels remain pretty stable, there were substantial increases in some sorts of offences - namely burglaries, robberies, vehicle thefts and violence involving knives and firearms.
The prison safety figures show that the prison crisis is deepening rather than improving. Although the number of suicides was down, self-harm and assaults on prisoners and staff reached unprecedented levels.
As usual, click on the tile to read the full story.
