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.

‘l can not thank you all enough for the help and support you have given us over our terrible loss. If it wasn’t for INQUEST, we would not have been able to deal with the faults of the prison system, and try and make some changes. Once again thank you all and thank you for being there if ever l needed to speak to someone.’
