THE racist ringleader of the gang that murdered schoolboy Kriss Donald yesterday launched a fresh bid to win thousands of pounds in damages for being locked in solitary confinement.
Imran “Baldy” Shahid, 38, was jailed for life after he was found guilty of the racially aggravated murder of Glasgow teenager Kriss in 2006.
Four years ago, the Court of Session rejected the thug’s bid to sue taxpayers for £6,000 over “degrading” treatment in prison.
Shahid launched a taxpayer-funded appeal yesterday against the decision at the Supreme Court in London.
Excluding yesterday’s case, the tax- paying public has been forced to foot a legal aid bill of £42,548 for Shahid to bring his human rights claim to court.
He claims he was “stressed” during four years and eight months spent in segregation.
Shahid listed “hearing voices” and being prohibited from attending communal prayers during Ramadan among his gripes about being kept in solitary confinement. But the Court of Session ruled that segregation was necessary for safety reasons.
