“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.
