Petition Abolish time limit for requesting sentences for child murder be reviewed

I would like families of murdered children to be able to request the sentence be reviewed, without any time limit. It is possible to ask for a Crown Court sentence to be reviewed, but applications must be made within 28 days of sentencing. This time limit should be abolished.

More details

In 2007 my son was murdered by my ex partner, he was sentenced to 17 years (IPP) I received an email from witness support saying he will be considered for parole in 2 years. He will be able to start a new life if released while my son's was taken away from him.

Since 2014 I have been fighting for longer sentencing for these evil people but my voice was never heard. I think now is the time to listen. Families don't deserve the worry of these monsters ever released.
