Week in Justice 11 Feb 2018

Two issues dominated criminal justice this week.

The first is the parole review kickstarted in the wake of the John Worboys decision. This week two of his victims were given leave for a judicial review into the decision to release their attacker on parole. 

HMI Probation also published a report into how the National Probation Service liaised with Mr Worboys' victims which raised broader issues about the restructuring and modernisation of the victim liaison service.

The second issue resulted from another HMI Probation report which found that both public and private probation handle prison recalls appropriately but criticised again the overall quality of CRC supervision work with people on community sentences.
