From: K [mailto:k]Sent: Monday, August 15, 2005 3:52 PMTo: kay.featherstone@hmps.gsi.gov.ukCc: john.podmore@hmps.gsi.gov.uk; sabine.zanker@fairtrialsabroad.org; e.a; tourintertrust@yahoo.comSubject: Manfred ZachelImportance: HighDear Ms FeatherstoneI write for and on behalf of Mr Manfred Joseph Zachel BX 4935 with whom you have corresponded recently.As you may be aware, Mr Zachel is not in the best of health and his problems in retrieving his properties left in your care during and subsequent to his Remand, are causing him serious distress and anxt.He has written a number of times to you and others in the quest for his belongings, but he does not seem to achieve satisfaction in any way.You confirm the existence of his property, namely seven large boxes containing various items including documents, in your responses to Ms Sabine Zanker of FairTrialsAbroad. In your Email to her dated 15 April 2005, you stated that the Governor had become personally involved in locating the missing boxes and was expecting a result by the end of that week, but as yet, there has been no confirmation of their whereabouts or disposal.My understanding is that personal items are to be kept safely and securely whilst a person is in your care and that such items should be returned intact and untampered with on discharge. Mr Zachel was not discharged to freedom, but taken from your care and deported whilst still in custody. He was therefore wholly unable to take his belongings with him and it would be crass to suggest otherwise, given his known state of health and the conditions of his conveyance to the airport.I am writing therefore to ask that you immediately and without delay, prevarication or failure, inform Mr Zachel of the whereabouts of his property and make immediate arrangements for him or his representative to collect them.In the event that you cannot locate the personal property of Mr Zachel, I will assist Mr Zachel in pursuing complaints for negligence/misadministration and compensation via the MP and the Ombudsman. Mr Zachel may take additional action through the courts.I am currently assisting Mr Zachel in publishing details of his life and experiences on the web www.manfredzachel.blogspot.com . Mr Zachel can be contacted direct on his telephone 44 [0] 7767 791305 or by Email to tourintertrust@yahoo.com.Yours sincerelyK

Message Received: Aug 19 2005, 03:26 PMFrom: "Featherstone, Kay" To: "'k " Cc: "Ward, Paul" Subject: RE: Manfred ZachelDear KThank you for your email and I do apologise as I had assumed that this had all been concluded. Various officers are now piecing together the events from when Mr Zachel left Brixton and as soon further information has been gathered, Paul Ward our Head of Operations will be able to supply you with more details.With reference to your 4th paragraph I insert part of my reply to Sabina dated 15 April and as you will see I did not "confirm the existence of his property, namely seven large boxes containing various items including documents." I would not be able to do this, as I am not privy to the contents of each prisoners cell.With best regards.Kay Featherstone

I believe that Mr Zachel has already listed and valued the contents of his boxes. Mr Zachel is not only concerned about those items that he valued, but also documents which he would have to replace at both cost and inconvenience.I would be grateful for a response within the morning as I will be taking Mr Zachel to see the MP and his solicitor this afternoon. Later this week, Mr Zachel has an interview appointment with one of the Independent Television Channels and this aspect of his life will be included.Mr Zachel has not been tried or sentenced in the UK for anything and was in your care merely on remand. As such, he was an innocent person and HMP had the absolute responsibility to ensure the care of both Mr Zachel and his property. It was his right to return to freedom complete with all his belongings.Regards

There has therefore been adequate time to complete any enquiries and produce either the property or a detailed explanation as to it's whereabouts or fate.I am now going to meet Mr Zachel with a view to taking the matter up with the MP and his solicitor. I will not be able to recover any e-mail messages until this evening, so if you wish to contact either Mr Zachel or myself, please telephone him on his mobile as detailed below.Regards once againK

Dear KayIt is now Tuesday 23 August 2005 and I have had no response to my message below.Following my previous missive, I took Mr Zachel to Messrs Kitson Hutchings Solicitors in Torquay, where we have made an appointment to meet with Mr Jeremy Howell this Friday at 2:00pm. We will then discuss the recovery of his properties lost as a result of his incarceration.Later this week, I will be drafting a letter to our MP Mr Adrian Sanders MP Torbay, with whom I have a close contact, having attended the same Grammar School.Mr Zachel is keen to hear of the results of your enquiries or your suggestions as to how to move forward in this matter.I have copied this e-mail string to Mr Bruce Jones of Channel 5, as they are currently negotiating a programme about Mr Zachel's life and experiences. I am sure that this matter, if not concluded, would make an interesting piece within such a broadcast, if not open a new area of investigative research into HMP and Brixton in particular.Kind regardsK

Dear Konrad,

I spoke to the Arts Tutor of Brixton prison today - by chance – and told her that the prison claimed that we had taken his belongings with him to South Africa. She told me as previously some months ago that she had came to his cell on the Tuesday after the extradition, which took place on a Saturday, and then all the boxes were still in the cell and Mr Zachel’s personal belongings, including his reading glasses, his teeth and his slippers were all still there on top /next to his bedside table. Mr Zachel cannot read without his glasses. Why would he leave those essentials behind, if he was allowed to take his possessions?

Best wishes Sabine Zanker
