POA calls on CPS to prosecute all assaults following Birmingham Crown Court decision on violent inmate
An inmate at HMP Birmingham, who injured five prison officers in two vicious and apparently planned attacks, has been convicted of two counts of Actual Bodily Harm and two counts of wounding with intent by Birmingham Crown Court.
The POA are becoming increasingly concerned at the increase in the prison population. Today’s population stands at 84,832 which represents another increase of 205 from this time last week, indeed the last three weeks has seen the population increase by 635. This is a new record for 2013.
The National Chairman of the POA PJ McParlin together with senior representatives of the PCS met with Carwyn Jones AM First Minister of Wales on Wednesday 25th September.
