In what way is it not in the public interest to know what Venables has done now?

It's purely for the sake of not jeopardising any future trial.He's such a high profile accused that narrowing down his crime could make it easier to single him out and no doubt the media would have folk working round the clock trying to pin point him.We don't need to gauge how well it's working,better qualified people...
