GLORIA MUSA IN HOLLOWAY PRISON AND STILL BLEEDING INTERNALLY 16 MONTHS AFTER GIVING BIRTH ON MARCH 10 2012.

Visit to see Gloria Musa in Holloway Prison, 30 July 2013
We saw Gloria today at HMP Holloway. It was very sad. She was tearful for the whole visit of approximately an hour and full of anger too and wouldn’t you be if youd had 7 children removed for no reason, been given a 7 year sentence in prison on an extremely dubious conviction and have been bleeding from internally for 16 months after giving birth to your last baby in a cell in Holloway prison, and still are denied medical treatment for that and other major ailments, including the infection that is festering around ones private parts because of the untreated bleeding. This is exactly Gloria Musa’s situation today, as I write, and it is outrageous it is being allowed to happen at all.
What I don?t understand is, if the so-called “Association of Mckenzie Friends” set-up is meant to be so helpful to families who have had or who are about to have children removed, along with the MP who is very much connected with it, how come Gloria Musa is still and has been suffering in prison for 16 months bleeding constantly since giving birth on March 10 2012? How come nobody connected to this “association” has done one single thing to alleviate Gloria Musa?s appalling suffering? This “association” cant claim they don?t know about Gloria’s situation because Sabine Mcneil, who began the set-up, has been making herself busy in the case for some time. Maybe actually making progress is not one of Ms. Mcneils fortes, or anyone else in the set-up for that matter, but getting known for something is. Its pathetic. The tiger with no teeth.
Gloria Musa’s situation is so dire that she is even denied an adequate amount of sanitary towels to use, and whats more is forced to lie on bloodstained bedding, as she recounted to me during this visit.
Communications notifying of Gloria?s situation to the prison service, including the Independent Monitoring Board, and the Ministry of Justice and others, including numerous MPs are generally completely ignored, as are letters to the Holloway prison governor about Gloria’s outrageous situation. The rare replies that are received contain nothing of any worth, other than saying things are being looked into, or other vague statements. Well, they may be being looked into, but nothing is ever done about the appalling situation. The Ministry of Justice state, in a reply [below] to my notifying them of Gloria Musa’s constant internal bleeding and other serious ailments, state:
“all organisations delivering NHS care strive to ensure that all patients receive the best possible treatment”.
This couldn?t be further from the truth, and Gloria Musa with her many serious untreated ailments is an absolute witness to the Ministry of Justice’s falsehood.
During the Musa’s dubious criminal trial half the court was in tears when the police themselves recounted the battering and mistreatment they gave Gloria at 3 in the morning in her single cubicle in hospital in the summer of 2010 when police and social workers took her 1st baby hours after birth when she was being breastfed by Gloria – its due to the injuries she received in the middle of the night then that Gloria cannot walk today. She has been in a wheelchair in Holloway prison many months with a chronic untreated knee ailment as she now cannot walk at all.
The prison sentence was for 7 years – an outrage in itself, but not treating Gloria Musa’s bleeding for half of it was not part of the sentence, and denying her an adequate amount of sanitary towels, and not treating the resulting infection is nothing less than barbaric. Its an utter outrage!
This is a true sworn statement by J. Graham 2 August 2013.
Letter dated 13 May 2013 from the Ministry of Justice after notifying them of Gloria Musa?s medical condition ? click on it to enlarge.
Red underlined states: “…all organisations delivering NHS care strive to ensure that all patients receive the best possible treatment…” – CLEARLY NOT THE CASE IN GLORIA’S SITUATION AND THIS CARE AS STATED IN THIS LETTER CANNOT BE BEING GIVEN AS SHE WAKES EACH DAY IN A NEWLY FORMED PATCH OF BLOOD AND HAS BEEN BLEEDING FROM INTERNALLY SINCE GIVING BIRTH TO HER BABY ON MARCH 10 2012!!
As I write on 21 May 2015, Gloria Musa is still undergoing treatment in a Nigerian hospital, and is awaiting serious operations which might allow her to walk proplerly again without aids. Gloria was in a wheelchair for the last half of the 3 years she was forced to endure in HM prisons, and the doctors in Nigeria stated they were surprised she was still alive after all she had been through since August 14 2012, up till November 27 2014, when the Musa parents Chiwar and Bishop Gloria were released and deported back home to Nigeria. The whereabouts of their 7 children is unknown, sadly.
