POA Circulars

Suma Chakrabarti comments regarding prison riots

I have received a response not from Suma Chakrabarti, but from Trevor Williams Operational Director in relation to the letter I sent on 12th November 2010.

The response from Trevor Williams is enclosed. I am disappointed that Mr Chakrabarti has not responded in person with an apology, but not surprised. It appears those individuals in high positions see it as a sign of weakness by offering an apology.

The POA has made its point very powerfully on behalf of our members and I do not intend to respond to the letter from Trevor Williams.

The only point the Executive would make is that these were prison riots not concerted indiscipline.

 

Yours sincerely
