It has been confirmed that Tommy Robinson, who was incarcerated at HMP Hull in a secure and safe wing, has been moved to HMP Onley in Warwickshire, where there are a preponderance of violent Muslim inmates, who have already threatened to murder him.
Leicestershire times According to information published on the Tommy Robinson official Facebook page, during the transfer, all the information in his file that mentioned that he was a high-risk prisoner had been removed. It is believed the intention was to transfer him to I wing, reportedly the only wing in the prison without cameras.
When Tommy protested that his life would be in danger, in a prison with a population where 1 in 3 of the inmates are Muslims in a facility a prison inspector deemed it unsafe, the response from the Governor was ‘Your name is downs as Lennon on the prison system, so you will be fine as no one will know who you are!’ (But most people in the UK already do know his real name)
However, inmates had apparently been informed by the prison imam the day before that Tommy was being transferred to Onley. How did the imam know?
Far from being safe and incognito, the first night Tommy spent in HMP Olney, he was housed next to a Muslim inmate who spent the entire night smashing things at the wall telling him that he will murder him in the morning.
The only reason he was not seriously injured, or worse, was that one officer decided to go against the orders from above and took him from his cell to the punishment block for his own protection.
Tommy is now being treated as a punished prison solitary confinement. Isolation cells to punish prisoners are meant to be a short-term measure, more than 30 days in isolation can have serious impacts on inmates mental health.
At HMP Onley, the routine of a normal prisoners day-to-day activities involves being allowed out of their cells between 8am-6pm during which time they are given the opportunity to work, play sport, enjoy education, social time and watch TV.
In contrast, Tommy Robinson’s routine on the punishment block sees him locked up 23.5 hours a day in complete isolation, he is allowed into a cage for 30 minutes a day for fresh air before returning to his cell that has a single blue mat on the floor.
Further reports suggest that his first visit with his children will be a ‘closed visit’ which means Tommy will see his children through a glass screen. He also missed a video link legal visit that was due to take place at HMP Hull yesterday, (Friday). HMP Onley does not have this facility, therefore on Friday Mr Robinson was unable to meet with his legal team to progress his appeal.
Questions are being asked as to why Tommy Robinson was moved from the safety of Hull where he had a normal prisoner regime, into a prison in which a prison inspector described as one of the most violent and unsafe prisons in the country with the largest Muslim population in all of the Midlands?
