A Jordanian doctor, who murdered his wife from Hartlepool, has been freed from jail and deported despite warnings from the Parole Board that he was still a danger.
Trainee travel agent Laura May Al-Shatanawi was murdered by Hassan Shatanawi and her family still do not know what he did with her body.
– Don Vaughan, Laura May's brother
We believed from what the Parole Board said that he would remain in prison because he was still a dangerous man."
Mr Vaughan said Shatanawi should not have been released before he revealed what he did with the 36-year-old's body.
Shatanawi was believed to have dismembered her in the shed at his allotment in Seaton Carew.
He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years in 1994 at Newcastle Crown Court.
He has since made three unsuccessful applications for parole.
Shatanawi, who owned properties in Hartlepool, had paid a workman to dismantle the shed and burn it, but the man sold it to a friend when he saw it was almost new.
