Black cab rapist John Worboys, 60, (pictured in a police mugshot) could still pose a risk to the public, the chairman of the Parole Board has admitted

The chairman of the Parole Board has conceded there is a risk ‘black cab rapist’ John Warboys could attack women again when he is released at the end of the month.

Professor Nick Hardwick defended the board’s decision to release Worboys, but said he ‘could not pretend risk could be eliminated completely’. 

Official figures show there were 86 serious violent or sexual offences – such as murder, rape and child abuse – committed by criminals on parole between 2013 and 2016.

Dunedin rapist to be released on parole – NZ Herald

A former Dunedin student jailed for raping and beating his partner – at one stage impregnating her during an attack – has been granted parole.

James Tawhirimatea Frazer Moanaroa was jailed in 2011 for eight-and-a-half years after being found guilty of three charges of rape, one of unlawful sexual connection and three of assault.

At sentencing Moanaroa’s offending was described as an attempt to physically and sexually control the young woman.

The court heard that she fell pregnant as a result of one of the rapes.

Moanaroa, now 32, has been denied parole a number of times since he became eligible.

But after a hearing on December 6 the Parole Board granted Moanaroa an early release from prison.

His sentence end date is March 8, 2020.

The board said Moanaroa’s offending was serious,

‘M25 rapist’ Antoni Imiela referred for parole – Sky News

Antoni Imiela, 63, was given seven life sentences in 2004 for a series of rapes across the Home Counties against women and girls as young as 10.

The railway worker, from Appledore near Ashford in Kent, carried out his attacks on women and girls he had never met.

He grabbed them and dragged them into a secluded area, threatening to kill them and hit them.

A spokesman for the Parole Board said: “We can confirm that the Ministry of Justice has referred the case of Antoni Imiela for a parole review.”

It added that the review is “following the standard six-month process for all indeterminate sentence prisoners”.

However, it is understood that any hearing to decide Imiela’s parole is unlikely to take place in the next six months.

After his 2004 conviction, Imiela’s DNA was put on a police database.

M25 rapist is ‘being considered for parole’ a week after board orders release of taxi driver John Worboys

M25 rapist Antoni Imiela is being considered for parole, it was reported last night a week after the decision to free taxi driver John Worboys.

Imiela, 63, was jailed in 2004 and given seven life sentences for the rape of nine women and girls, eight of which occurred in just one year.

But The Sun reported last night that a parole board are set to meet to discuss his release, 14 years on from his detention.

The railway worker, who was born in West Germany to a Polish father and German mother, emigrated with his family to the UK at the age of seven. He became known as the M25 Rapist because many of his attacks happened near the motorway, as his crimes took place in Surrey, Kent, Berkshire, London, Hertfordshire and even Birmingham.

In one assault, he telephoned the mother of the victim to boast about raping her daughter.

M25 rapist Antoni Imiela considered for parole despite receiving SEVEN life sentences in 2004

M25 rapist Antoni Imiela is being considered for parole — a week after the decision to free cabbie fiend John Worboys.

Theresa May says she knows a victim of ‘Black cab rapist’ John Worboys as she vows to make parole decisions more …

Theresa May has revealed she knows a victim of “Black cab rapist” John Worboys – and hinted she may change the law after an outcry over his release.

Ministers launched a review last night of the decision to free the 60-year-old just nine years after he was jailed on 19 charges of drugging and sexually assaulting 12 passengers, in one case raping a woman.

Victims say they felt “cheated and betrayed” after first finding out about the Parole Board’s decision from reports in the media.

Now the Prime Minister has said she knows one of those victims who was not informed.

She said she was determined to do “what is necessary” to ensure decisions are made more openly in future, and would not rule out changing the law.

Parole chief apologises to victims not told of rapist John Worboys’ release

Professor Nick Hardwick said the Parole Board was told Worboys’ victims had been informed he was to be released so revealed the decision on that basis.

He said the women had been “failed by the system”.

Prof Hardwick added the process must have been “very distressing” for victims and said he would launch a public consultation as he recognises there is a “lack of transparency” in the Parole Board.

He called on MPs to back his call to change Parole Board Rules which prevent the decision-making process for specific cases to be discussed.

Worboys, who became known as London’s black cab rapist, was convicted of rape and several sexual assaults.

He was jailed indefinitely in 2009 and police have since linked him to more than 100 further rapes and sexual assaults after other alleged victims came forward.

On Wednesday, it was revealed he will be released soon after serving his minimum sentence of eight years.

Marpole rapist denied parole but allowed visits with family

A dangerous sexual offender who was dubbed the Marpole rapist has been denied parole but allowed short visits with his family.

The Parole Board of Canada found that Gary Jagur Singh, 62, convicted of sexually assaulting 11 Vancouver women, poses an undue risk to reoffend. The board denied him both day and full parole.

But the board also said that he did not pose a risk to reoffend if he is allowed temporary unescorted absences with relatives under special conditions.

The board said the temporary visits would let him build his supports and strengthen his ability to manage his risk.

“You have a strong support structure in place and the (unescorted temporary absences) plan is gradual and structured with specific reporting mechanisms built in.”

The special conditions for the visits include that Singh is not to drink, buy or possess alcohol, is to immediately report all intimate sexual and non-sexual relationships and friendships with women,

State opposes parole for man who killed his rapist

The state prosecution said Sunday that it was opposed to parole for a man who is in prison for killing his rapist, Hadashot TV news reported.

Yonatan Heilo, who has long fought for early release, is scheduled to face a prison parole board on Monday. In 2013 he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

He became eligible for early release after President Reuven Rivlin commuted part of his sentence in November.

Heilo was initially convicted of murdering Yaron Eilin in the coastal city of Netanya, after the latter repeatedly raped, robbed and blackmailed him over a period of several months in 2010.

However, in 2016, following an appeal, the Supreme Court softened Heilo’s murder conviction, instead finding him guilty of manslaughter and reducing his term from 20 years to
