COVID-19: Plight of Prisoners
Jeremy Dein QC appears on ITV news calling for attention to be given to the plight of prisoners. Visits are being cancelled, phone calls stopped, sanitisation poor, and health care resources are at a minimum. Lock up is not the answer.
25 Bedford Row is anxious that the risks to prisoners are exposed and addressed, if necessary, by early release and grant of bail. We will be monitoring this situation closely, and doing everything possible to protect the rights and safety of those in jeopardy.
