It's very simple, Biggs family. Maybe Ron isn't a danger any more, but he chose to spend 30 years on the run in Brazil, laughing his union jack Y-fronts off at British justice, rather than serving his sentence (for a horrific crime) with a modicum of dignity and decency.
The British public - and the family of the driver whom he helped kick the crap from - deserve to see justice being done, and if that means keeping him incarcerated for as long as it takes to make up the time lost while he swanned around Rio, then so be it. Sorry, but that's how the system works.
