A victim of black cap rapist John Worboys has vowed to come face to face with him in prison in a bid to stop him being freed.
The woman says she plans on attending a parole hearing in the coming months to read an impact statement.
She hopes that by revealing the devastating impact his crimes have had on her life, it will keep the serial sex attacker locked up.
The woman, known only as DSD for legal reasons, is now backing calls for a new law allowing victims a bigger say in how criminals are given parole.
She told the Daily Mirror: ‘I have been in court now on and off for 10 years and at some point you have to say enough is enough.
‘But it’s never going to be over because every time he’s up for parole I’m going to be there giving a victim impact statement, trying to block it and he comes up for parole every two years.
‘He wants it over, he feels like he has done his time but what about us? We can never turn it off and say right I’ve done my time.’
Worboys , 60, of Rotherhithe, London, was convicted of attacks on 12 women at his 2009 trial but is suspected of having more than 100 victims.
Earlier this month it was reported that the sex attacker met with lawyers to discuss a renewed bid for freedom. It emerged he is hoping to win a new parole hearing later this year.

Last year the Parole Board ruled Worboys could be freed after finding he had ‘positive’ treatment with psychologists.
But the decision was reversed amid huge public outcry, as two victims, DSD, and another, known as NBV, appealed against the ruling in court. The board’s chairman Nick Hardwick was also forced to quit.
DSD told the Mirror: ‘My whole life has changed as a result of Worboys.
‘I’m sick and tired of thinking about him and worrying if he is going to be released.
‘It should have been a case of he goes to prison and he’s forgotten.’

Worboys was never prosecuted over his 2003 attack on DSD, after failings by Scotland Yard. It was the first time he was reported to police.
In 2014, a High Court judge found he did rape DSD, in a ruling on her case against the Met.

DSD and NBV were awarded more than £41,000 compensation but Scotland Yard challenged the move. But in February, the Supreme Court ruled the women’s human rights were breached.
Last month landmark proposals were unveiled by Justice Secretary David Gauke which would allow victims to challenge any Parole Board ruling without resorting to a costly judicial review.
The plans mean the new hearings could be led by a judge and open to public scrutiny in some cases, including when dealing with the most notorious criminals.
Ministers also pledged to introduce legislation to immediately end the blanket ban directing that all Parole Board decisions are made in secret.
Unveiling the package of measures last month, he said: ‘We will improve the process for victims, who in this case were clearly let down.
‘It is my ambition that the outcome of this process will mean victims have more confidence in the system.
‘We have moved at a pace to address the shortcomings of the parole system which the Worboys case has brought to light.
‘But we must take a balanced approach. I am determined to lead a thorough reform process.’
