Inquest into the death of EH
02.07.2018 – 05.07.2018
Acted for the Ministry of Justice in this 3 day inquest into the death of EH, who had hanged himself at HMP Wormwood Scrubs.
The inquest considered a wide range of issues, including EH’s location on the first night centre (rather than the detox unit), the timing of his medication, his previous mental health history disclosed at a previous prison, and the emergency response. The jury (sitting at West London Coroner’s Court) found no failings on the part of the Ministry of Justice.
