A serious further offence review regarding the supervision of Jon Venables.
Following the conviction of Jon Venables on 23 July this year for possessing and distributing indecent images of children, the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice commissioned Sir David Omand GCB to undertake an independent review into the management of Jon Venables, from his release from local authority detention in June 2001 until his recall to custody on 24 February this year.
Available from this page is a link to a copy of the review's report that has been submitted to the department.
The report has been redacted in certain places to comply with the terms of the injunction amended in the High Court on 23 July 2010 (commonly known as the Butler-Sloss Injunction), to take account of data protection and other confidentiality laws and to protect very sensitive operational policing information.
