HELP IPP PRISONERS BE RELEASED THAT HAVE BEEN RECALLED BACK TO PRISON WITH NO CRIMES COMMITTED.
My name is Suzanne Attrill,
My partner is Paul Masters, IPP prisoner currently on recall for breach of license.
Mr partner was released in June 2013 and recalled in October 2013 for not returning to the hostel. The only reason he did not return was because his father was ill and then passed away. Probation and the hostel staff were aware of this. Mr Masters had a parole hearing on the 29th August 2014 and was told he was not to be released because of his risk. Prison probation, hampshire probation and the psychologist all recomended his release to the hostel. He has not committed any offences, his risk is the same as last year. The parole board decided to refer to psychology report from 2011 and kept referring to his past. Mr Masters is being kept in custody because of crimes he ‘might’ commit. My concern is how can someone be released in 2013 with a board satified and be denied in 2014 with no crimes committed and clearly an emotional reason to breach his license. How is this fair when the risk is the same. The parole board were only concerned about his past and I feel he is being punished yet again, despite all positive recommendations up to date, Psychological report the parole board looked past that and judged him on his past. How is this allowed and how can in this day someone be kept in custody for things that ‘could’ happen. I was on the parole board and found it disgusting that the whole reason for him being back to prison was overlooked. He was targeted and ridiculd for his past. He has not re-offended and his risk is the same as his release last year. The parole board looked for an excuse to keep him in custody and could only do so on his past.
Please can you help with this blatent unjust in human piece of reasoning. It is surely in human to keep someone in prison incase they offend when clearly he has not. I hope to hear from you, thankyou. I do not know how this could make a difference but am willing to try anything for the right reasons.
