Transsexual killer: Keeping me in men’s prison violates my human rights – By Daily Mail Reporter

A transsexual jailed for strangling her boyfriend has gone to the High Court claiming that keeping her in a men’s prison violates her human rights under European law.

The prisoner, in her 20s and serving a life sentence for manslaughter and attempted rape, is legally female and her birth certificate has been amended accordingly, London’s High Court heard.

Born male, she has had hair on her face and legs permanently removed by laser and has developed breasts after hormone treatment.
