Philip Lawrence’s widow urges reform of human rights laws after killer Learco Chindamo recalled to prison

David Cameron is under pressure to keep a promise to reform the Human Rights Act after the foreign born murder of Philip Lawrence was arrested on suspicion of another violent attack.

Frances Lawrence, the headmaster’s widow, said the legislation needed to be “revised”. Conservative MPs urged the Prime Minister to act on his previous pledges to scrap the current legislation.

The Daily Telegraph disclosed on Wednesday that Learco Chindamo had been arrested four months after his release for the 1995 murder of Mr Lawrence outside a west London school.

The Government had been prevented from deporting Chindamo to Italy, where he lived as a child, because of the Human Rights Act. He was freed in July and allowed to live in Britain.
