Successful judicial review of Parole Board’s decision to release John Worboys

In a judicial review challenge brought by two of John Worboys’ victims known as DSD and NBV, the High Court quashes the decision to release John Radford – formerly John Worboys – on public law grounds of irrationality. In particular, the panel "should have undertaken further inquiry into the circumstances of his offending". These circumstances include, but are not limited to, evidence of Mr Radford’s wider offending. The Court also held that Rule 25(1) of the Parole Board Rules 2016, which prohibits any information about parole proceedings being made public, is unlawful.
