Thanks to Norman Scarth‘s astute mind and live experience with prisons, we learned about three cases where prisoners succeeded in getting access to the “facilities” required to prepare their defence: computers, law books, etc.

But Maurice is being hit with one refusal after another.  Hence I wrote this letter:

Mr Richard Booty
Governor
HMP Cardiff

Dear Governor Booty

Re Mr Maurice J Kirk BVSc A7306 AT

This is to alert you to case law that allows prisoners access to computers, law books and the facilities needed to prepare their defence in court proceedings. I enclose just one hard copy. References to three cases are on the article Who Governs HMP Governors? Who Ensures Human Rights for Prisoners?[1]

Jeremy Bentham[2] knew already in the 19th century that Publicity is the very soul of justice[3]. In the absence of fairness and justice, I’d like to make you aware of the public support for Mr Kirk’s quests for fairness and justice:

I understand you have received other evidence for public support, for it is hardly acceptable that medical attention is not provided adaequately nor access to communication and the facilities needed for court cases.

I trust that I can appeal to your conscience, for that’s all that remains with us every night and at the end of our lives.

Yours sincerely,
