Richard Burgon responds to Worboys Supreme Court ruling

Richard Burgon MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, responding to the Supreme Court ruling into the handling of the John Worboys case said:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling underlines the need for an independent end-to-end review into the whole handling of the Worboy’s case.

“We need a thorough examination of the handling of the case from the first reported attack to the police by a victim, right through to the parole board hearings.

“Anything less will fail to re-establish public confidence in our justice system and will let victims down again.”
