Jon Venables: James Bulger killer freed from prison for second time
31-year-old has been released with a new identity after being granted parole in July
Jon Venables, one of the two killers of toddler James Bulger, has been freed from prison for a second time.
Venables, 31, was released from prison after being jailed for downloading images of child abuse in 2010, The Sun has reported.
He had previously served eight years for the murder of two-year-old James in Liverpool in 1993.
Venables was granted parole on 4 July.
The toddler's mother, Denise Fergus, told the newspaper Venables is “a danger to the public”.
“He lies for his own sick ends,” she said.
“I have been told that the terms of his parole mean that he must not enter the county of Merseyside.
"But the Probation Service didn't monitor him properly last time so I have no faith in their ability to do that now.
“They should've kept him locked up for a long time.”
Venables was reportedly granted parole in July as officials finished establishing his new identity, which has allegedly cost £250,000.
Venables was ten-years-old when he and Robert Thompson tortured and killed James after abducting him from a shopping centre in Bootle, Merseyside.
A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: “We do not comment on individual offenders.
"The re-release of life licensed offenders is directed by the independent Parole Board once they are satisfied they can be safely managed in the community.
“Their life licence lasts for the rest of their lives, and they may be recalled to prison at any time for breaching their licence conditions.
“Additionally, they will be subject to strict controls and restrictions for as long as their risk requires them."
