No to solitary confinement: Free Kevan Thakrar
By Payday men’s network
Kevan Thakrar was wrongly convicted of murder and attempted murder in 2008 under “joint enterprise”, the legal rule by which a member of a group can be convicted of a crime even if he/she didn’t commit it. In 2010, he was found not guilty of attacking guards (he acted in self defence), yet was put in solitary confinement in Close Supervision Centres (CSC), locked in his cell 23 h/day. With other organisations, especially Legal Action for Women and Women of Colour GWS, we have supported him and, at his demand, have challenged the Royal College of Psychiatrists for giving an award of “Enabling Environments” to the CSCs.
