Inquiry into parole system concludes

Gwen Valentine was killed in April 2014

DHA investigation wraps up in Douglas

A comprehensive inquiry into the Island's parole system has concluded today in Douglas (Monday).

It's heard from a range of personnel involved in the release of prisoner Donovan Kitching in 2014, who proceeded to kill 62-year-old Gwen Valentine just three weeks later.

Prison and probation staff, the Chief Constable and the Home Affairs Minister were among those giving detailed evidence on the failings that took place.

Chairman Geoff Karran will now compile a report and list of recommendations, to be laid before Tynwald later this year.
