Kevan Thakrar- Important Update

IWW member Kevan has been kept in solitary confinement for over 8 years. You can read more about his case here. The majority has been inside the UK’s Close Supervision Centres– prisons within prisons. He has now been moved to a segregation unit at HMP Long Lartin that has even worse conditions.

Since being moved to HMP Long Lartin, with no explanation or justification, FW Kevan has been kept in solitary confinement in the segregation wing. He has been given no indication as to when he will be moved to general population, as segregation is not meant to be used indefinitely. All this, in spite of recommendations from a psychologist that he should be moved to general population.

As well as being deprived of human contact, FW Kevan’s visits have been unofficially restricted to a closed visit behind a screen. He has no hot water in his cell, and no toilet seat, lid or privacy screen.

Re: Kevan Thakrar A4907AE

To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you urgently, regarding the aforementioned inmate, Kevan Thakrar. I am asking you to make immediate plans for Kevan to be transferred to general population.

I am concerned about the ongoing treatment of Kevan, who has been kept in solitary confinement for over 8 years. The majority has been inside the UK’s Close Supervision Centres – prisons within prisons. He has now been moved to a segregation unit at HMP Long Lartin that has even worse conditions.

Since being moved to HMP Long Lartin, with no explanation or justification, Kevan has been kept in solitary confinement. He has been given no indication as to when he will be moved to general population, as segregation is not meant to be used indefinitely.

As well as being deprived of human contact, Kevan’s visits have been unofficially restricted to a closed visit behind a screen. He has no hot water in his cell, and no toilet seat, lid or privacy screen.

I look forward to your response,

    FW Kevan Thakrar is the innocent victim of corruption and dishonesty at every level of the legal system, there being not a shred of evidence to place him anywhere near the scene of the crime for which he was convicted.
