Antoni Imiela: ‘M25 rapist’ who was given seven life sentences for series of rapes in 2004 referred for parole

A man dubbed the “M25 rapist” has been referred for parole a week after the decision to free another serial rapist caused furore.

Antoni Imiela was given seven life sentences in 2004 for a series of rapes across the Home Counties against women and girls as young as 10.

Last week it emerged John Worboys, the “black cab rapist” who was jailed indefinitely in 2009 with a minimum term of eight years for drugging and sexually assaulting female passengers, would be freed from prison.

Imiela, a 63-year-old railway worker from Appledore, near Ashford in Kent, carried out a series of attacks across the South East on women and girls he had never met.

He grabbed his victims, dragged them into a secluded area, threatened to kill them and hit them.
