It’s not the first time I’ve covered a case like this, but it always strikes me how very different our systems are. 

BBC reports:

A convicted murderer released on parole from a secure psychiatric unit has won his Supreme Court battle to keep his identity secret.

The double killer, who is in his 40s, is in the process of changing his name to start a new life, the court heard.

The man, who was referred to as “C”, had killed his ex-girlfriend and her new companion, the court heard.

The anonymity issue came about after C, who was released in October, applied for a High Court judicial review of a decision by the home secretary to refuse him unescorted leave in the community.
