Jacinda Ardern says that James Bulger's murderer does not have to make an effort to move to New Zealand

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has issued a warning to James Bulger's murderer, Jon Venables, amid claims that he could be expelled to New Zealand to start a new life.

British officials allegedly consider relocating the child murderer because he costs the authorities too much money to protect.

At a press conference on Monday, Mrs. Ardern quickly closed the possibility of canceling that there was no chance that Venables would be admitted to the country.

& # 39; I have been advised that New Zealand Immigration has not received anything officially. Of course, because of his existing beliefs, he would need an exemption, & she said.

& # 39; My advice would be, do not apply. & # 39;

Venables, who shocked the world after kidnapping and killing the two-year-old boy when he was only ten, received lifelong anonymity after he was found guilty of murder in 1993.

British officials are reportedly tired of constantly having to create new identities for the murderer and have proposed sending him to Canada, New Zealand and Australia, according to reports.

The Ministry of the Interior declined to comment on the matter when contacting Daily Mail Australia.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the Canadian government for comments.

The movement has outraged Australians and Kiwis who believe that the killer should not have been released in the first place, let alone admitted to another country with a new identity.

& # 39; No thanks, save it in your country! Let Australia out of the comparison, deal with your own problems and let us deal with ours, & a woman said in a comment on Facebook.

& # 39; I thought they didn't send convicts here 150 years ago, & # 39; another joked.

The idea was even criticized by a Brit who said that Venables should stay in the country and live without government protection.

& # 39; I really hope this is not true. He must stay (in the UK) and the authorities must let us know his new identity and let us treat him! How can they even start to think that this is a good thing to do. Have him stand up while those poor babies suffer here every day of their lives, & said the user.

& # 39; Why the hell can he start life again with a new identity if that poor little boy couldn't live with him? What's wrong with this society. Must be life for a life, & another person said.

Venables, now 36 years old, has been given various identities since his conviction in 1993, but is constantly ridiculed by angry members of the public.

A source told it Daily Star: & # 39; Venables costs a fortune.

& # 39; The idea is that it would be cheaper to get rid of him abroad than to keep looking. & # 39;

Bulger was killed by Venables and Robert Thompson, both ten years old, on 12 February 1993, after the two had taken him from his mother in a shopping center in Liverpool.

Both murderers were given lifelong anonymity after they were taken into custody, but Robert Thompson has never been heard of

The move would come, because civil servants have become tired of constantly creating new identities for the child murderer who received lifelong anonymity after he was found guilty of murder at the age of 10

Venables, on the other hand, was imprisoned twice more after admitting more than 1,000 & # 39; sickening & # 39; have child pornography, as well as a manual for pedophiles.

Earlier this year it was announced that legal battles to keep his identity secret cost British taxpayers £ 65,000 (AU $ 119,450.50)

Venables lawyers received £ 8,100 (AU $ 14,885) in legal aid, while government lawyers received nearly £ 57,300 (AU $ 105,300)

James Bulger's father, Ralph, 52, has said that he will spend his life overthrowing the statement that his son's killers can remain anonymous to protect the public & # 39;

However, judges of the Supreme Court ruled against the bid because they believed it would endanger the lives of Venables.

At the time, Sir Andrew McFarlane, president of the High Court's family division, said: & # 39; (Venables) is & # 39; unique infamous & # 39; and there is a strong possibility, if not a probability, that if his identity were known, he would be pursued with serious and potentially fatal consequences.

& # 39; So this is a very exceptional case and the evidence in 2019 is more than sufficient to support the conclusion that there is still a real risk of significant damage to Venables. & # 39;

Deputy Chief Commissioner Andy Cooke, National Police Leader for Protected Persons, has previously said they will move to different places in the UK and beyond.

He said: & # 39; That doesn't mean we're going to move them to Copacabana, but they'll get something to say. & # 39;
