The killer who beat teenager Jimmy Mizen to death with a glass plate has been paroled after 14 years behind bars
A thug who murdered a schoolboy by hitting him in the face with a glass bowl is set to be released from prison.
Jake Fahri, then 19, was sentenced to life in prison for his assault on 16-year-old Jimmy Mizen in a London bakery in May 2008.
During an altercation, he grabbed a glass baking pan and threw it in Jimmy’s face, fatally injuring him.
Fahri is now set to be released from prison following the parole board’s decision, The Sun can reveal.
A spokesman for the parole board said, “We can confirm that following an oral hearing, a panel of the parole board has ordered the release of Jake Fahri.”
“The parole board’s decisions focus solely on what risk a prisoner might pose to the public if released and whether that risk is manageable in the community.
“A panel will carefully review a variety of evidence, including details of the original crime and any evidence of behavior modification, as well as examining the damage caused and the impact of the crime on victims.”
“In the run-up to an oral hearing, members read and digest hundreds of pages of evidence and reports.
“Testimony may be given at the hearing from witnesses such as probation officers, psychiatrists and psychologists, officers supervising the offender in prison, as well as personal testimony from the victim.
“It is customary for the prisoner and witnesses to be extensively questioned during the hearing, which often lasts a full day or more.
“Probation tests are conducted thoroughly and with the utmost care. Protecting the public is our top priority.”
Jimmy – who had just turned 16 the day before the attack – had gone to buy his first lottery ticket when the deadly fight broke out.
He was at the Three Cooks Bakery in Burnt Ash Hill with his brother Harry when the thug struck Fahri.
During the fight, he grabbed a glass baking dish and threw it in Jimmy’s face, fatally injuring him.
After the murder, his parents Margaret and Barry formed the Mizen Foundation to spread a message of peace.
They visit schools, churches, prisons and workplaces to talk about Jimmy and build more peaceful communities.
