Kevan Thakrar transfers to HMP Manchester as screws continue their vendetta (UK)

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

From a comrade of the Anarchist Black Cross Brighton:

There’s a call out now for people to start writing letters of complaint about Kevan Thakrar. Here’s a couple of messages I got from his Mum yesterday:

Kev has been fighting against everything wrong in prisons and the way prisoners are treated. He is being tortured in an attempt to shut him up. The POA [Prison Officers Association] have a vendetta against him after being found not guilty of assaulting prison officers at HMP Frankland. Please show your support by writing, calling, emailing your complaints to HMP Manchester, Tel: 0161 817 5600. FAX: 0161 817 5601. Acting Governor Hannah Lane

Kevan is being tortured at HMP Manchester. He has been starved for 3 days and only allowed out of his cell after the phones have been shut off. He is being subjected to strip searches 3 or 4 times a day usually from the same officer. He has been given 3 IEP’s in the past week and has been put on closed visits which means he is only entitled to 30 minute visits. The director of high security prisons Richard Vince visited him and told him that the move to Manchester is a permanent one so he had better stop making complaints. (more…)
