Wandsworth and Pentonville Prison governors could be reinvestigated

Two of the country’s leading prison governors could be reinvestigated after an email showed their involvement in the transfer of a vulnerable prisoner – from Streatham – who later killed himself.

Ian Mulholland, former governor at Wandsworth – the largest prison in Britain – and Nick Leader, former governor of Pentonville prison, were initially cleared of gross misconduct after it was alleged they helped try to “subvert the inspection process” by swapping self-harming and vulnerable prisoners to dupe inspectors.

The original investigation was prompted by a report from the former chief inspectors of prisons, who found five Wandsworth inmates were moved to Pentonville for the duration of an inspection, and six were moved in the opposite direction.
