Peter McParlin, chairman of the Prison Officers Association has said that the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) should not have allowed their response to an alleged violent jail incident involving Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo to "run on for two days".
Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebolajo was pushed against a window by prison officers, knocking out two of his teeth, his brother has claimed.
Jeremiah Adebolajo told the BBC that he speaks to his brother almost daily and had also spoken to his lawyer and to the governor of Belmarsh Prison, where his brother is held.
Five prison officers were suspended over the incident, which occurred on Wednesday at the prison in south east London. All members "strenuously deny" any wrongdoing.
The Prison Officers Association have reacted angrily to the news that five of its members have been suspended over allegations that one of the men charged with killing Fusilier Lee Rigby has been injured whilst being restrained. Michael Adebolajo lost two teeth at Belmarsh Prison.
