“Our deepest sympathies remain with Mrs Fergus and Mr Bulger for the pain and affliction they have endured.
“Because this case has been of such understandable uneasiness, when the man formerly known as Jon Venables was recalled to custody in February 2010, the then Even-handedness Secretary asked Sir David Omand, the former Permanent Secretary at the Stingingly Office, to conduct an extensive review of the management of Venables from the every so often old-fashioned of his release from Red Bank Secure Children’s Home in 2001 until his recantation to custody.
“In July 2010 Venables was convicted of possessing, downloading and dispensation indecent images of children, and Sir David’s detailed report was published in November 2010.”
“The uncontrolled Parole Board directed Venables’ re-release on life licence – responsible for to strict licence conditions in July 2013 after a thorough endanger assessment and in accordance with the statutory release test, which is whether it is obligatory on the grounds of public protection for the offender to be detained in custody.

“The Parole Advisers aboard is legally not allowed to share the reasons behind any of its release decisions, but the Direction last month announced an urgent review into how to increase the transparency of Parole-Board decision-making and whether and how it potency be possible to challenge those decisions.
“Unlike in 2010, Jon Venables’ fresh criminal acts were discovered as a direct result of the tight watch to which he was subject by the Police and Probation Services. He has also constantly been course of study to stricter licence conditions and more scrutiny than most lifers would be at the after all is said stage of their sentence. For that reason, a review of the management of Venables since 2010 drive not have the same clear focus.
“Nonetheless, the Government’s number one immediacy is public safety so we will of course keep the monitoring practice under the control of constant review. Venables is now serving a sentence of 40 months’ incarceration for possessing indecent images of children.
“Once he has completed the custodial take a hand in of that sentence, he will remain in custody until the independent Parole Game table determines that his risk is such that he may be re-released on life disregard.”
