UK Public to Pay for Transgender Murderer Who Wants Sex Change Surgery

In what has been described by prison officers as a “security nightmare,” a 27-year-old Paris Green who identifies as a woman, will be transferred to a hospital for the procedure.

The move will cost the National Health Service (NHS) around $25,000 (£20,000) for Green’s stay of several days in a private room. If the prisoner is set for a surgery, the publicly funded NHS will foot the bill of up to $77,000 (£60,000).

The entire ordeal will include a 1,000-mile round-trip a Scotland prison to a hospital in the south of England and 24-hour guard, accompanying Green.
