Jon Venables Gets No New Identity And Stays In Prison, Says Source

by | 8th, November 2011

JON Venables, one of James Bulger’s killers is back in the news. He’s behind bars, where he will stay for his own safely. Well, so says the official report.

Venables is in jail for possessing child pornography. And due to his “fragile mental state” and having told some friends his true identity, he will remain prison.

We learn:

The Daily Telegraph has also been told that if Venables does eventually regain his freedom, he will not be given a second false identity because it has been deemed too costly.

A source tells the paper:

“His progress is being reviewed every six months at the moment. He won’t be released until he can be trusted not to disclose his identity again. But because of his fragile mental state it doesn’t look as though he is going to be released in the near future. For his own safety, it is better that he is kept behind bars.”

He can never be trusted not to reveal his true identity. It is who he is.

“If he does eventually get released, he will live under the same false identity he has been using since 2001. The feeling is that only a very few people know the name he is using, and the risk can be managed. There are certainly no plans to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds creating a second new identity just for him to self-disclose again.”

Unless it’s bluff?
