Three notorious murderers sentenced to die in jail are demanding their ‘human right’ to be considered for freedom.
In an explosive move, the unelected European Court of Human Rights has agreed to hear the cases, putting Strasbourg on a collision course with the UK Government and enraging victims.
Each killer committed crimes so serious they were handed a ‘whole life’ sentence by the courts.
But Jeremy Bamber, Peter Moore and Douglas Vinter argue these should be subject to ‘regular review’ to prove they have reformed.
They say condemning them to die in jail amounts to ‘inhuman or degrading treatment’ and breaches their right to a fair trial.
