The former chair of the Prison Officers’ Association
Andrew Darken has been charged with threatening behaviour and is
due to appear in court tomorrow.
Darken allegedly threatened another member of the POA outside
the union’s London offices last year.
Darken was the POA branch chair at the time of Zahid
Mubarek’s death at Feltham Young Offender Institution in
March 2000, and is due to give evidence to the Mubarek inquiry on
staff-management relations on Wednesday.
