FACTFILE


16th May 2005, Dembovskis  raped and murdered 17 year old Jeshma Raithatha in Greenford, West London. Dembovskis fled to Latvia soon after the murder but was arrested and extradited back to England.

29th March 2006, Dembovskis was found guilty of rape and murder at the Old Bailey. He received three concurrent terms of life imprisonment and the trial judge recommended that he should never be released, It was revealed that he had been jailed twice on rape charges in his native Latvia.

February 2007, the European Court of Justice began a review of lifelong imprisonment to determine whether such sentences amounted to a violation of human rights. It lifelong imprisonment is outlawed, then Dembovskis and all other prisoners serving such sentences would have their cases recalled to court in order for a new minimum term to be set.

23 February 2008, It was revealed that Dembrovskis was one of around 50 prisoners who had been issued with whole life tariffs and were unlikely ever to be released.
