Opaque Parole Board Protects Disgraced Panel Members

Nick Hardwick has rightly resigned as the chairman of the Parole Board. Martin Jones, the Parole Board chief executive, remains in post and is declining to answer journalists’ questions this afternoon. The Parole Board says the three anonymous panel members who made the original decision to release Worboys will not be named and the buck will not be passed to them.
