Dear Mr Millar,
I am one of the Staffordshire Pindown institutional child abuse survivors and I am writing to you about a man who was taken to La Moye prison yesterday, Stuart Syvret.
Mr Syvret has been helping the victims of the child abuse at Haut de la Garenne.
It is very difficult for people who are unfortunate enough to suffer institutional abuse as children, because of the tendency of those in authority to attempt to cover up the abuse, and to persecute whistleblowers, such as Mr Syvret.
Mr Millar, I know that you have to do your job, and your duty is to detain the people who are sent to your prison by the courts. I just want to make you aware of the fact that Mr Syvret is a political prisoner, I am sure that he will have made an application to you to be so regarded at La Moye by now, and I would urge you to be particular to pay attention to the international humanitarian law with regard to this issue.
I will be writing to the Prime Minister on this issue, and enclosing a copy of this letter, and I will also be writing to Amnesty International.
