Dexter Dias QC publishes book on human rights supporting INQUEST
6 June 2017
This week, Dexter Dias QC, barrister at Garden Court Chambers, and INQUEST trustee published his book on human rights and human psychology The Ten Types of Human (Penguin RH). The book supports three social justice organisations, including INQUEST.
Dexter started his research after the Gareth Myatt case, on which he worked with INQUEST. Gareth, aged 15, died after dangerous restraint by three prison officers at the privately run Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre. Dexter has worked with INQUEST for two decades on a number of high profile inquests, seeking to vindicate the Article 2 rights of bereaved families in cases such as the Alton Manning inquest (another restraint death), the inquests of Jake Hardy and Cherry Groce, and the Zahid Mubarek public inquiry.

‘No other organisation has worked so closely with bereaved families throughout the investigation and inquest process. INQUEST has a unique insight into the daily difficulties families face while striving to cope in the aftermath of a death in custody. The Skills and Support Toolkit can provide you with practical advice needed to continue and maintain your day to day life at a time when even the simplest of tasks can seem insurmountable, or help you develop the skills needed to mount a campaign. ’
