Dominic Raab, the father of a child, has asked the Parole Board to reconsider its decision to release the toddler's mother from prison

Baby P suffered more than 50 injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken back

UK-DailyFastNews.Com, All of the professional witnesses who spoke before the Parole Board indicated Tracey Connelly, the toddler's mother, has a minimal chance of reoffending. Mr Raab, the justice secretary, also stated in the Commons that he intends to conduct a "root and branch" assessment of the parole system.

Dominic Raab intends to petition the Parole Board to rethink its decision that Tracey Connelly, Baby P's mother, be released from prison.

Connelly, 40, was sentenced to prison in 2009 for her son's death, which occurred after he had more than 50 injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken back.

Baby P was on the at-risk register and had 60 visits from social workers, police, and health specialists over the course of eight months, causing controversy.

"In light of the Parole Board's directive to release Tracey Connelly, I should advise the House that, having carefully reviewed the judgement, I have chosen to apply to the Parole Board to seek their reconsideration," Mr Raab said in the House of Commons.

Mr Raab told MPs that a "root and branch" reform of the parole system is in the works.

"Our reforms will ensure that those offenders who pose the greatest risk to public safety are scrutinized more thoroughly, with increased ministerial scrutiny," he said.

"The government's main priority is to protect the public." This review's proposals will ensure public safety."

In 2007, Baby P's mother was sentenced to prison for causing or permitting his death at their house in Tottenham, north London.

Connelly had been denied parole three times in the last seven years, but the board has determined that she is now eligible for release.

Connelly's release was reportedly backed by all expert witnesses before the board's review panel, and the government representative who attended confirmed the recommendation was accepted.

Witnesses told panel members that Connolly now has a minimal chance of reoffending.

"Parole Board judgments are purely focused on what risk a prisoner could represent to the public if released, and whether that risk is manageable in the community," a parole board representative stated.

"Parole hearings are conducted meticulously and with great care. Our top priority is to keep the people safe."

In Parliament, Shadow Justice Secretary Steve Reed described Tracey Connelly's possible release as "disturbing news," adding, "I entirely back the Secretary of State in requesting a review of that."

Steven Barker, Connelly's lover, and his brother Jason Owen were also charged.

She confessed to the crime and was sentenced to a minimum of five years in prison for public protection (IPP).

Since her incarceration, the Parole Board has reviewed her case four times.

The decision was supposed to be made last year, but it was postponed pending more reports and data.

Connelly was released on probation in 2013, but was returned to prison in 2015 after violating her parole terms.

Sharon Shoesmith, the Director of Social Services for Haringey Council, was fired by a government minister in December 2008, following a damning Ofsted report concerning Baby P's murder.

Following her unjust dismissal action, she was awarded a six-figure sum.
