If you have been following our last few posts you will see that another company has been charged with Corporate Manslaughter.

Ministry of Defence service custody premises and customs custody facilities.

This is a real wake up call for Directors and Senior Managers of any custodial setting who can be prosecuted for a death that results from the use of physical force in such settings.
