Petition Introduce new mandatory sentences for murder if a victim's remains aren't found

Parole boards must consider non-disclosure of information about a victim's remains, but we don't think this goes far enough. We want a new law - Chantel's law - with mandatory 40 year sentences for murder when a victim's remains are not found, with no parole or possibility of time in an open prison.

More details

The current law also only requires parole boards to consider non-disclosure of information. It is also unclear how it applies to murderers who dismember a body and say the body parts have been put in different sites or in a place they can never be found.

We want the Government to prevent murderers from being granted parole or moved to an open prison, where the victim's remains are not found.
