Gauke hamstrung over Worboys judicial review

The Justice Secretary David Gauke has rejected calls for a judicial review into the release of John Worboys. Upon the Secretary of State receiving legal advice, David Gauke told the House of Commons: 

“Having taken considered and expert legal advice I have decided that it would not be appropriate to proceed … I know this will disappoint victims in this case and members of this house given the crimes for which he has been convicted. I share those concerns. “Contacts have taken place with victims this week and further meetings about his release will take place next week. “Let me be absolutely clear: Worboys will not be released until their representations have been properly consulted and until his licence conditions are in place.” A number of Worboys’s victims are attempting to pursue their own judicial review via a crowdfunding initiative. £17,000 has been raised to date, the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association have also pledged £5,000 in support of the quest to keep Worboys behind bars.
