Mum’s unfortunate defence for improved reserve during Swansea Prison where her son was found dead

A lamentation silent has called for haven improvements to be finished during Swansea Prison following a remarkable genocide of her son.

Angie Hammons is petitioning a Ministry of Justice and a Welsh Labour supervision to place Swansea Prison underneath embargo for receipt of prisoners, until it is “fit for purpose”.

Her 32-year-old son, Robert Lee Evans, was found passed in a jail on Sunday, Jan 14, within days of nearing during a facility.

His genocide came 10 days after a announcement of a ban news by HM Inspectorate of Prisons, that suggested failures to respond effectively to high-levels of self-harm and suicides of new prisoners.

Mrs Hammons said: “Swansea Prison is in a terrible state and has a terrible record with suicides.

“All of a prisons are in a state all over a country, not only Wales, yet there is an emanate around haven during Swansea Prison.

“When my son died we was apparently really upset, and afterwards my hermit told me they have got a story for it.

“I feel in a initial instance, until it is sorted out, a jail should stop receiving people.

“I wish this puts vigour on a Ministry of Justice to indeed do a small bit some-more in that prison.

“It seems to be an ongoing emanate but any changes put in place. As a mom we indicate a news in south Wales each day shocked I’m going to see that there has been another death.”

In 2014, inspectors had warned a jail indispensable “to be energised, rejuvenated and refocused on delivering softened outcomes”.

In his report, Peter Clarke, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons labelled commentary from a successive investigation in Aug 2017 as “very disappointing”.

He said: “Complacency warned about after a final investigation had been authorised to take hold.”

Inspectors described how there had been “four self-inflicted deaths” given a final investigation in 2014, when there was also 4 recorded, all of that took place “within a initial 7 days of attainment during Swansea”.

There were also 134 incidents of self-harm.

The news pronounced it was “inexcusable” a jail did not entirely act on recommendations by a Prisons and Probation Ombudsman, that investigates deaths in prisons.

A pre-inquest conference is set to take place in Jul into Mr Evans’ death, who had been removed on looseness after shoplifting in Aberystwyth on Jan 2.

Ms Hammons added: “There is going to be no quick fortitude from a coroner on this so we wanted to make a petition for people to be wakeful as to what is going on.

“There have been 11 group in a past 10 years who have been found dead.

“Eleven have died in their initial days being there, many of that were there for teenager offences.

“This is not about my son, that is not peerless to me, this is about putting some vigour on them to urge their complacency, that’s what is critical to me.”

A Prison Service orator said: “HMP Swansea has taken poignant stairs to urge haven and revoke self-harm, including softened caring and support for offenders in a initial night centre.

“A new comparison operational manager has also been recruited to concentration on safety, and extended self-murder and self-harm impediment training is being given to staff to boost support for exposed prisoners.

“We know some-more contingency be finished though, and a jail continues to work to exercise a recommendations of a Inspectorate.”

Meanwhile Swansea Prison has implemented a new drugs plan to revoke piece injustice while measures have been taken to boost inspection among government staff.
