Notorious rapists Joseph McCann and Reynhard Sinaga could spend the rest of their lives in jail as senior judges decide if the 30-year minimum terms they were given were too lenient
臭名昭著的强奸犯约瑟夫·麦肯(Joseph McCann)和雷恩哈德·西纳加(Reynhard Sinaga)可能会在监狱中度过余生，因为高级法官将决定他们被判处的30年最低刑期是否过于宽松。
Two of England's 'worst and most violent' rapists could spend the rest of their life in jail if senior judges decide if they should be given whole life terms.
Joseph McCann, 35, was given 33 life sentences at the Old Bailey in December for a string of horrific sex attacks on 11 women and children during a 15-day cocaine and vodka-fuelled rampage.
去年12月，35岁的约瑟夫·麦肯(Joseph McCann)在老贝利(Old Bailey)被判处33次无期徒刑，原因是他在为期15天的可卡因和伏特加引发的暴行中，对11名妇女和儿童进行了一系列可怕的性侵。
Reynhard Sinaga, 37, was also sentenced to life in January at Manchester Crown Court for a total of 159 offences, including 136 counts of rape, committed against 48 men - although police have linked him to more than 190 potential victims.
The Attorney General's Office referred the 30-year minimum jail terms handed to McCann and Sinaga to the Court of Appeal as 'unduly lenient' earlier this year.
At a hearing in London on Wednesday, solicitor general Michael Ellis QC will argue that McCann and Sinaga should both have been given a whole life tariff for a litany of sexual offences, which are 'some of the worst and most violent that this country has ever witnessed'.
周三在伦敦举行的听证会上，总检察长迈克尔·埃利斯御用大律师(Michael Ellis QC)将辩称，麦肯和西纳加都应该因为一连串的性犯罪而被处以终身关税，这些性犯罪是这个国家有史以来目睹过的最严重和最暴力的一些犯罪行为。
The hearing, which will test whether a whole life order can be imposed in non-homicide cases, will also be the first time two separate offenders' sentences have been challenged together as being unduly lenient.
Five senior judges - including the Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett and the President of the Queen's Bench Division, Dame Victoria Sharp - are expected to hear the case over two days.
McCann carried out a series of sex attacks in London and the North West in April and May 2019, just two months after the convicted burglar was wrongly freed from prison following 'major failings' by probation staff.
He was found guilty in December of 37 charges relating to 11 victims, aged between 11 and 71, and was described by the sentencing judge, Mr Justice Edis, as a 'classic psychopath'.
Sinaga - the UK's most prolific serial rapist - preyed on lone, drunk young men around nightclubs near his flat in Manchester, posing as a Good Samaritan who offered them a floor to sleep on or promised them more drink.
The Indonesian student drugged the men then filmed himself sexually violating them while they were unconscious, with many of his victims having little or no memory of the assaults.
Judge Suzanne Goddard QC, who sentenced him to a minimum of 30 years, described Sinaga as 'an evil serial sexual predator' and a 'monster'.
