California Governor to have final say in release of Robert Kennedy assassin | The World


Robert Kennedy’s oldest son has condemned a decision to grant parole to his father’s killer.

Sirhan Sirhan was convicted of the 1968 assassination of the New York senator.

But a California parole board found Sirhan no longer poses a threat to society.

Professor of Security Studies at University of Massachusetts Lowell, Arie Perliger, says there’s likely to be some politics at play in whether the Governor agrees to release him.
