Surviving HELL The Chennai Six

Arrested and imprisoned in India as one of the ‘Chennai Six’, Nick wasn’t just innocent of any crime, there was no crime. Stationed on an anti-piracy ship to protect vessels against Somali pirates, the six were arrested and falsely charged with intruding in Indian waters and the possession of illegal weapons. Nick lost four years of his life trapped in a legal nightmare in India, thousands of miles from home and his family, spending the bulk of his time in appalling conditions at Chennai prison with extremely limited contact to the outside world. Despite this, Nick refused to buckle and now he tells his full story of endurance and survival for the very first time.

Transcript from ‘Surviving HELL The Chennai Six’ podcast

Chris and Nick

C – Nick how are you brother?

N – I’m good thank you very much.

C – You’ve been through a lot.

N – Yes, you could say that.

C – On the bright side you’ve got a book coming out.

N – I do yes and I’m trying to promote it at best as I can. Hopefully during lockdown people can potentially read and take something worth of value from the book, especially when I’m talking about isolation. People may say you were in a prison and I’m at home. For people with mental health problems they feel they are a prison in their own home. I want to shed light on what my isolation was like and the stuff I had available, people can then think well I’m not in a prison and look at the stuff they have at their disposal.
