A Jordanian doctor who murdered his wife from Hartlepool has been freed from jail and deported just weeks after the Parole Board warned he was still a danger, the devastated family of his victim have revealed.
Hassan Shatanawi has never revealed how he killed Laura May Al-Shatanawi 20 years ago, and her family still do not know what he did with her body.
They fear that the 67-year-old could be anywhere as he is no longer monitored by the UK authorities and may even sneak back into the country.
The family only found about about the killer's release after it happened, and are furious with Home Secretary Theresa May.
She used powers meaning that foreign prisoners who have served the minimum part of their sentence may be deported immediately if they have no right to remain in the country.
