2018 – 51 – transfer


Hello friend,

Finally, some good news: my cross-border transfer has now been approved. I even know which Scottish prison I will be going to; far,far, closer to my mother. I won’t say yet which prison, I don’t want any 3rd party interference.

One slightly concerning aspect: the Scottish Prison Service asked this prison if I was a smoker and my sexual orientation. That rings alarm bells for me; are they considering making me share a cell? This would be the most awful decision to take; on any number of levels. I’ve written to the SPS and the Scottish prison to find out if a shared cell is really a consideration.

Be happy, be safe.

    • Hi Angela,
      So good to hear that you are ok. It was a bit of a worry. Might be a while before I get to Scotland as they are prioritising Scottish Prisons for transfer , this is because they are currently over capacity. I will post a message on the blog to let everyone know when I get there.
      I hope you are well, Graham.
