A pre-op transsexual locked up in a women’s jail for a savage torture-killing has been moved to a different prison after claims he was having sex with female inmates.
Murderer Paris Green, 22, who was previously known as Peter Laing, was allowed to serve his 18-year sentence in Cornton Vale women’s prison, in Stirling, because he says he is transgendered.
But today it emerged he has been moved amid suspicions that he was involved in casual-sex relationships with other convicts there.
Green was sent to the prison only five weeks ago after he was found guilty, alongside Kevin McDonagh, 23, and Dean Smith, 20, of the murder of Robert Shankland in March this year.
The trio had invited Mr Shankland, 45, to a party in Green’s flat in the central Scotland town of Glenrothes. There he was tied up, beaten and tortured for hours before finally being murdered.
Despite a campaign by Mr Shankland’s parents, Mary and Ian Bell, Green was told he could serve his sentence in a women’s prison prior to taxpayer-funded gender realignment surgery.
Now after his dalliances with fellow convicts at Cornton Vale, he is to be kept in the women’s section of Edinburgh’s Saughton jail.
Mrs Bell, 69, said yesterday: ‘It doesn’t make any difference where he is to me. He’s in the women’s bit of the jail and he’s still a man.
‘There’s no point in campaigning because it’s not going to get us anywhere. There’s not much we can do now.’
Mrs Bell added she was not prejudiced against transgender individuals.
Mr Shankland’s Stepfather 79-year-old Mr Bell, said: ‘The law’s a farce. It doesn’t give society any protection.’
Sources at Cornton Row told the Daily Record that prison wardens had warned Green and his partners there that their behaviour was not acceptable.
