NAME: Stephen Watson
COUNTRY: Ireland
RIGHTS VIOLATION: Police arbitrariness
YEAR: 2021
CASE INFORMATION:

Stephen Ryan Watson, 20, was found “unresponsive” in his cell at Dublin’s Cloverhill Prison on April 27, 2021.

He was on remand for three weeks on charges relating to the alleged theft of an iPhone and was supposed to get out on bail on May 31. Watson’s mother Laura was told by the guards that Stephen didn’t take his own life, but they couldn’t tell her the exact cause of death. She was said that guards went into the cell that morning and he wasn’t breathing.

Laura said that Stephen struggled with mental health problems and was unable to get the right support for his ADHD and Bipolar Disorder in prison. Laura said she spoke to Stephen on the day of his death, and he sounded fine.

An investigation into his death by the Office of Inspector of Prisons is being carried out. Laura hopes that she can get some answers regarding her son’s untimely death. Laura said her son could die because of using drugs. She said he never took drugs, but he could start using drugs in prison.
