A black prison officer who was subjected to "a campaign of appalling treatment" over a period of almost two years is awarded compensation of £28,500, including a record £21,000 for injury to feelings, by a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) in Johnson v (1) Armitage (2) Marsden (3) HM Prison Service.
From mid-1991 up to and beyond his industrial tribunal application in March 1993, Claude Johnson, a prison officer at Brixton prison, was ostracised by fellow prison officers following his complaint about the manhandling of a black prisoner by officers.
