The Supreme Court has confirmed to RNZ that it has received an application from Lundy's legal team.

Lundy, who is now 60, was found guilty at a retrial in 2015 after his initial convictions were overturned in the Privy Council.

The Court of Appeal in October this year rejected his appeal against his convictions.
