Update on the judicial review challenge on the release of John Worboys

There will be a half-day hearing at 10.30am, Weds 7th February at the Royal Courts of Justice.

Two claims have been issued, one on behalf of DSD and NBV, two of Worboys victims and one on behalf of the Mayor of London.  In addition an application has been lodged today by News Group Newspapers Ltd with a request to also be joined in the proceedings. 

This case is an ‘unprecedented’ legal challenge and the first time a claim is brought to challenge a parole board decision by someone other than the prisoner.

This hearing will determine whether we are granted permission to proceed with the full judicial review challenge and if so will give directions for the disclosure of the parole board dossier.

We welcome protesters outside the court from 9.30am  to show support for the survivors of John Worboys. If you wish to protest, please bring your own placards!
