What lessons have been learnt from the recent case involving Mr Jaji in Enfield - where a girl of 11 was raped by Mr Jaji, who had been convicted of another sexual assault on a child a year earlier but had not been registered as a sex offender; and then was later again convicted of possessing child pornography and had a met a probation officer on the afternoon of this attack?

This is a serious case which has been thoroughly reviewed by the MPS in November 2012. It highlighted the need for robust interagency working and management of offender risk. Probation would have had responsibility for managing Mr Jaji in the community so any Serious Offence Review of this case would have been conducted by LPT and not the Met. The problems encountered by the MPS, Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) and other agencies in managing the risk of harm posed by Mr Jaji are now being considered by the Ministry of Justice who are conducting two separate reviews into the case. The outcome of the reviews will be given serious consideration by the MPS and will influence interagency working in the future.
