On 7th April Kevan Thakrar was moved to seg without authorisation. Kev has been placed in a dirty punishment cell with no electricity, no toilet seat or lid. Kev also has less access to the phone. He has been falsely accused of threatening officers and placed on “backwall unlock”. This means he has to stand at the back of the cell against the wall whilst 4 officers enter. This is triggering for his PTSD after being subject to racist abuse including being almost murdered last year.
HMP Full Sutton are failing to meet Kev’s basic entitlement and needs. Kev has no mental health support. No care plan in place. Kev’s disability is not being acknowledged.
Take action now to get Kevan moved out of segregation! Includes sample letter.
