This from Tom Henri. It looks to me to be an attempted State premeditated murder, aka Capital Punishment, for a minor offense. There is also an open letter to the Ministry of Justice, signed by various luminaries.
Daniel Roque Hall suffers from Friedreich’s ataxia, this debilitating and fatal illness means he requires around the clock care. In 2011 Daniel pleaded guilty to smuggling cocaine into the UK. The judge sentenced Daniel to three years in prison, on the proviso that a prison place could be found which would meet his health care needs. The Governor of Wormwood Scrubs (widely regarded as the London prison with the worst health facilities) stated that his prison could meet Daniel’s needs. After three weeks of neglectful treatment in the Scrubs, Daniel was rushed to hospital and placed on a life support machine. Without exaggeration, the care (or lack of) that Daniel received in prison nearly killed him. His man has a fatal degenerate disease, he requires full-time care, he is no harm to anyone else and he need to be with his family – NOT in Wormwood Scrubs. Earlier this week, Daniel and his family won a seven day reprieve on Daniel’s return to jail.
