RELATIVES AND friends of Derek Fegan, who was found hanged last October in an isolation cell at Brixton prison while on remand, are stepping up their campaign for an independent public enquiry into the circumstances surrounding the Irishman's death.
The family believes that there is strong evidence suggesting that the prison staff acted negligently. They are also pressing for an investigation into the extent of anti-Irish racism in the British penal system. Campaigners are calling upon individuals, organisations and trade union branches to raise these issues with MPs and MEPs.
