The UK has come to "care more about the human rights of murderers" than the victims bereaved relatives, according to a Conservative MP.
Philip Davies raised concerns that letting convicted criminals out on day release was not transparent enough and violent criminals were kept in prisons lacking the kind of security needed to keep them behind bars.
He told Good Morning Britain: "It seems the human rights of murderers seem more important than those of the victims and the law abiding citizens."
