June 2021 will mark 15 years since the launch of 4WardEverUK in 2006 by Tippa Naphtali the cousin of Mikey Powell, who was killed in the custody of West Midlands police, Birmingham, UK in September 2003.
4WardEverUK’s Tippa Naphtali said; “This is a powerful and comprehensive piece on custody deaths/killings and the National Memorial Family Fund. We are very grateful to Emma Youle (HuffPost UK) and the families that participated.”
Secure video calls will be introduced to prisons and young offender institutions across England and Wales (following a successful trial at HMP Berwyn) to maintain vital family contact for prisoners and young offenders during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment has published the report on its visit to the UK, in May 2019, and response of UK authorities.
