DECISION OF THE BOARD
- Phillip Bruce Ray Bannan was scheduled for his third appearance before the Board today but has filed a waiver stating that there is “no point, waste of time.” His statutory release date on a sentence of nine years for manslaughter is 19 September 2019.
- He has seen submissions from his family of his victims saying that they believe he should serve his full term of imprisonment.
- The only rehabilitative treatment he has done is the Drug Treatment Programme (DTP). His reports are that he has been misconduct-free since June 2018 and it is anticipated that he would be released within the [withheld] supported accommodation environment.
- In the circumstances we consider that we do not have enough information to grant parole at this stage and will simply now fix his release conditions as from his statutory release date. They will be the standard and following special conditions to run to six months past his statutory release date including a curfew 10.00 pm to 6.00 am. In addition to the proposed release conditions we have added a no-drive provision. In the circumstances we have decided that the electronic monitoring requirement does not really assist with management of risk and have deleted those.
