Worboys case: Release of taxi rapist triggers parole review
From BBC - January 7, 2018

The way parole is considered is to be reviewed following the decision to release serial sex attacker John Worboys, the prime minister has said.

Theresa May said she was determined to do "what is necessary" to bring "greater openness" to the decision-making process of the Parole Board.

Victims of black-cab rapist John Worboys feel "betrayed" by the decision to release him, a solicitor has said.

The PM also revealed that she knew one of Worboys' victims.

"I fully recognise why people are concerned about this", she said.
