Default Soham Killer To Sue Prison Service For £100k

Killer Ian Huntley is to sue the prison service after he had his throat slashed by another inmate in Frankland Prison, County Durham.
It is reported he is demanding almost £100,000 from the Ministry of Justice for failing in its duty of care towards him.

He was taken to hospital in March after the attack and required urgent treatment.

A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: "Ian Huntley is bringing a claim against the Ministry of Justice following an assault by another prisoner.

"The claim is currently being vigorously defended."

Huntley is serving life for murdering 10-year-olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in Soham, Cambridgeshire, in 2002.

It is thought that he will receive legal aid to fight the case, which could end up costing the taxpayer over £1m.

Huntley is considered one of Britain's most high-profile prisoners as he has been repeatedly targeted by other inmates and has attempted to take his own life three times.

He has been seriously assaulted a number of times since his conviction.

In 2003 tried to overdose on antidepressants at Woodhill Prison in Buckinghamshire.

If the ministry of justice had failed, he wouldn't be able to make any demands

I wish they did fail... although some shitass lawyer woudl probably try to sue on his behalf.

Seriosuly the govt has a duty of care and should be able to protect inmates. Regardless of what they did- the prison sentence is supposed to be just that, not a sentence to a lifetime of deadly cat-and-mouse.

All I can hope for is a change in the law, to allow a deathmatch type sentence to be enforced when it comes to scum like that.
