Quote of the month

“I am writing to you directly to ask for consideration of compassionate release on behalf of my (relative).  I have written to the prison governor and a copy is attached.  …  It is my sincere belief that my (relative) who is (70+) and has long-term health issues faces a growing risk of early death if he remains in prison….  This is much higher than he would experience if at home with me.  He has never presented a risk to the public and most certainly cannot do so now..”  (extracts from a letter sent to the Lord Chancellor)  Posted 1st March 2020.
