But Russian psychiatrist Mikhail Pervushin claimed chemically castrated paedophiles, once released from jail, can become even more dangerous.
He warned such people are “mentally ill” and by blocking their sexual desire, they may instead kill, saying: “The big question is how these paedophiles will be tested for such a danger."
