EDM 631: Daniel Roque Hall

October 25, 2012

Readers in the UK, please ask your MP to sign this:

That this House notes that Daniel Roque Hall is a 30-year-old severely disabled man with Friedreich’s Ataxia, a multi-system and fatal illness, now so advanced that he cannot use his arms or legs, has blurred vision, damaged speech, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia and Type 1 diabetes; further notes that he was imprisoned for attempting to bring cocaine into this country, but recognises that, given the seriousness of his condition and the complexity of his care needs, prison is not suitable for him, bearing in mind that seven weeks through his three-year sentence he was taken to hospital where he remains two months later after spending overa week in intensive care; further notes that his mother, his GP, the former HM Chief Inspector of Prisons, Lord Ramsbotham, disability and other organisations, including Ataxia UK, Liberty and WinVisible and over 1,400 people who signed a petition, have warned that a return to prison would amount to a death sentence for him; welcomes the decision of the Secretary of State for the Home Department to stop the extradition of Gary McKinnon because it would subject him to inhuman and degrading treatment and endanger his life; and calls on the Secretary of State to show the same compassion to Daniel Roque Hall by allowing him to serve the rest of his sentence at home, where he can receive the appropriate care and medical support and be supervised by probation services.

    it is reassuring in this scandalous case that this MP displays the integrity and humanity so patently absent in the judges` ruling and the actions of HMPWS
