The Probation service will today reveal the outcomes of an inquiry into how they dealt with a man they classed as "medium risk" just weeks before he went on to murder his uncle.

Shabir Choudary was stabbed to death by his nephew Zahir Aziz just weeks after Aziz was released from prison after being jailed for a previous violent offence.

Mr Choudary was killed in his own flat after letting Aziz live with him. At the time, Aziz was classed as a "medium risk".

Today Mr Choudray's family will hear the results of the Probation Service's inquiry into the handling of the case after the Justice Ministry demanded that the service be more open with victims' families in the future.

Government guidance changed last month so that where a prisoner under the care of the probation trust commits a further offence, the report into that further offence will be shared with the family.

It's almost three years since Shabir Choudary died but his family say their campaign for justice won't stop here. They now want the full report into his death made public, not just a summary.

They also want West Yorkshire's Chief Constable and the county's Police and Crime Commissioner to look at the case, to establish whether there is enough evidence to possibly bring a charge of corporate manslaughter.
