Former vetinerary surgeon and pilot Maurice Kirk, 73, has been released on parole from prison to a Welsh bail hostel after being outrageously barred from residing in the land of his birth – England. I visited him yesterday and was shocked to see the condition he was in. His ankle, where he has metal plates inserted previously after airplane crashes, has given him much trouble in the past and was swollen up again and giving him great pain. Having been on hunger strike for 2 months at the end of what many consider to be a completely unjust 12 months behind bars [from a 2 year sentence given in December 2017 – the latest in a series of sentences] in HMP Parc, Wales he has also lost considerable weight – 4 stones he tells us. He is thankfully eating now but still denied the urgent medical operation he so badly needs for stomach related ailments at the hospital, which he has just left after 4 days there. He was denied medical treatment throughout his recent 12 months in HMP Parc, and also denied was his much needed medication – “Omerzaparole”, causing him endless problems, with many more restrictions in place also.

A typical post from Febuary 2018 which shows the chronic indifference shown towards an inmate in the care of the prison system who needs vital medication but never gets it whilst in HMP Parc:
MAURICE KIRK: OUTRAGEOUS: STILL DENIED VITAL MEDICATIONS AND HOSPITAL APPOINTMENTS AND MORE IN HMP PARC + archive 06 Feb. 2018
Maurice Kirk is serving a 2 year sentence in HMP Parc because, it is deemed, he breached a restraining order that was never served on him in the first place according to UK law [see previous updates regarding the scandal surrounding this entire subject].
A letter dated 1st Febuary was received today from Maurice – still on hunger strike in HMP Parc. In the letter are described the continuing serious irregularities performed by the HMP Parc prison service, perhaps the most serious being vital medications are still denied Maurice, [which have been denied him for “7 weeks” he states], and also vital hospital appointments are still denied him. Regarding the medications being denied, which must be taken immediately before food is taken in order for them to be effective [he has a probable “split diaphragm” in his stomach, + other serious ailments], the prison continues to deny him his prescribed medication – a basic human right that the prison are obliged to follow, but communications to UK and Welsh government agencies concerning this glaring breach of Maurice’s Human Rights [and also the breach of this prison’s own guidelines] by many UK citizens prove futile and ignored. Maurice remarks in his latest communication that the bizarre excuse was used by the prison staff that they had actually “lost” the container that the medications were stored in, thus denying him yet again his medication, but when they find it they will dispense it to him – a promise that wasn’t kept!
Maurice writes also that:
he has locked in his cell for 24 hrs / day, and been denied post “for 5 days”!
On going to the room allocated for the dispensing of medications to inmates, he was denied his medication yet again, Maurice states that he is “on report” for the 2nd time for not leaving the ground floor door of the medical room where there is a hatch where the medications are dispensed to inmates. Being “on report” and being found “guilty” by the prison authorities will cause an inmate to be punished. eg. to lose his canteen, or other similar restrictions that are deemed “priveleges” by the prison service. Maurice states that this is the “2nd time” he has been placed “on report”.
He has it confirmed “in writing” from the prison that he is indeed registered a “MAPPA 3, Cat. 3” subject, after it was reported that this allocation was said to have been abandoned in years past. However, the reasons for such an serious registration being in place now has not been explained in any form by anyone he’s contacted and asked – within the prison or outside of it – another glaring breach of Maurice’s rights. Perhaps any UK or Welsh government agency will not concede the fact that this allocation of Maurice being a MAPPA subject was already abandoned some time ago – and why will noone answer Maurice’s question to them asking why he is subjected to this registration? The governments and its agencies are obliged to inform any subject the reasoning for any MAPPA registration. But not for Maurice, it seems!
Maurice writes that he has been denied his prison canteen “for 2 weeks”, meaning stamps are denied him for the sending of letters – which means he is denied sending many letters to court officials and authority figures regarding this present term of most questionable imprisonment, along with numerous other miscarriages of justice performed in the past that have been forced upon him, including letters regarding his MAPPA registration, of course. Naturally the governments know this present and entire conviction and it’s resulting term of 2 years imprisonment imposed on Maurice is riddled with errors and flaws and legal irregularities, thus anything to deny him writing to anyone in order to try and attempt justice regarding the inhuman and barbaric tortures imposed and being imposed upon him at present. Maurice had 30+ legal cases ongoing against mostly Welsh authorities, especially the S. Welsh police, those cases being blocked now because of completely erroneous reasons concocted by the same authorities complained of in order that justice cannot be done. Since 2009 Maurice, 72, has served over 6 years in prison – each term on the most highly questionable of grounds, eg. in the past Maurice has been locked up for months on end on remand in a Welsh prison, before being released with the charges all being mysteriously dropped – with no compensation or proper explanation ever being given to him regarding the loss of these 6+ years of his life spent behind bars for no good reason. Such is the Welsh legal system regarding Maurice Kirk, who’s only “fault” is to try and show the utter deceit and dishonesty flourishing within the Welsh police and connected agencies. It is truly a disgrace and a public scandal that has blighted Maurice’s life for over 23 years – and it is still ongoing in HMP Parc!
