Convicted murderer Jason Roberts will be able to argue to overturn his jailing over the 1998 shooting of two police officers after the Court of Appeal accepted his legal challenge.

In a brief hearing today, the three justices unanimously granted leave for him to appeal.

In 2002, he was sentenced to life in prison, with a non-parole period of 35 years, for the murders of Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rodney Miller in Moorabbin in 1998.

Another man, Bandali Debs, is also in prison over the murders.

Roberts's lawyers seized on evidence revealed in Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission hearings last year that investigating officers had altered documents to say there were two killers.

His lawyers will now be able to argue there has been a miscarriage of justice.

It is not clear when the hearing will happen because court operations are being affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
