This has gone beyond a joke.
Please publicise if you can. He has now served longer than Lord Ahmed who killed a man on the motorway shortly after texting. Ahmed served just 16 days. Refresh your memory here.
These emails arrived in my inbox this morning:
I am therefore making the following points. Your response/or lack of will be used in the formal complaint made to the United Nations.
b. Denial of his medications,
c. Denial of access to legal counsel
d. Theft of his property by prison staff.
4. Your authorities have a duty of care, and should have acted immediately in order to alleviate the problem. As this has not happened, it will be considered gross negligence. Should anything happen to Mr. Scarth, it will be gross negligence causing death, which is a very serious matter indeed.
5. May I ask that you provide all internal documents, as I wish to make a subject access request under the Data Protection Act combined with a Freedom of Information Act to access all internal documentation relevant to my formal complaint to yourselves.
In light of the seriousness of this issue, I shall be grateful if Ms. Marshall would re-evaluate her plan of action. URGENT intervention is required by all parties to this communication.
In conclusion, please advise, on the basis of previous complaints and several contacts made with Ms Emma Marshall, and the attached further complaints (none of which have been actioned by the prison), and including the complaint that complaints are not being actioned, how you intend to proceed and, when. You will no doubt agree that it is simply not adequate or acceptable for any of you evade the issues in light of the emergency nature of this issue.
As I have explained before to Ms. Emma Marshall, the delays that have been characteristic of this case are currently totally unacceptable. Significant stress leading to a cardiac arrest will result in death. Given the mortality rate of Leeds Prison is already significantly high, it may be in the authority's best interests for immediate intervention. This may prevent future litigation and adverse publicity.
I hope to hear from you within 24 hours. If I have not heard from you, this document will be sent to the Special Rapporteurs at the United Nations accompanied by a formal complaint against the UK's failure to care for its elderly prisoners in line with current human rights and equality legislation. Please review this link http://www2.ohchr.org/english/issues/torture/rapporteur/appeals.htm in relation to the steps that will be taken in 24 hours regarding the gross violation of civil liberties meted out on a elderly gentleman in the care of your authorities.
This is nothing other than a vindictive sentence, issued by a judge in a bad mood. Is that how we want to continue? Spiteful judges and stupid sentencing? If so, do nothing.
If, however, your blood is boiling like mine, let's do what we can to get him out.
