The prisoner with a GRC, who allegedly carried out the attack, Monaghan said, had convictions for serious sexual offences against women but was housed in the general population of a women’s prison.
Doesn’t sound hugely sensible:
In a skeleton argument released at the start of the hearing, Karon Monaghan QC, for the prisoner, said that MoJ policies “allow prisoners to be accommodated in the prison estate that corresponds to their declared gender identity, irrespective of whether they have taken any legal or medical steps to acquire that gender”.
Perhaps a little selectivity here. Even, dread word, discrimination?
Possibly, penises convicted of the rape of women might not be put into a women’s prison even if encased in a skirt while those shrivelled to incapacity by hormones and convicted of TV licence avoidance might be?
Or, you know, all being adult about this rather than a toddler’s insistence on being Popeye – IyamwhatIyam?
