2020 – 18 – transfer
Transfer: not any time soon!
I recently obtained the latest figures in Scottish prisons(FoI). They are 302 over their capacity. The most likely prison for my transfer is 56 over their capacity. They have reduced their population over the past year but (at current rates) it’s going to take another 3 – 4 years before I’m transferred! My application was originally submitted in November 2016 and approved – after being rejected then appealed – 2 years ago!
One of the grounds was for compassionate reasons. My mother is now 80 years old – what are they waiting for, I’ve already lost my father – find space!
Be happy, be safe and be kind.
