The chair of the Zahid Mubarek inquiry is to visit Feltham Young
Offender Institution at the start of the inquiry’s second phase on
July 4, writes Amy Taylor.
Mr Justice Keith and his panel will assess how things have
changed at the establishment since Mubarek’s murder by his cellmate
Robert Stewart in March 2000.
The Feltham visit will be followed by visits to Pentonville,
Wormwood Scrubs, Parkhurst, Wayland, Lancaster Farms, Altcourse and
The inquiry wants to hear the views of staff including governors
and race relations officers on racism, the treatment of mentally
disordered prisoners and the implementation of cell-sharing risk
The inquiry will also hold a number of focus groups and
It is hoped the chair will be able to hand over his report to
the Home Secretary by the end of the year.
