According to a report, one of Britain’s most notorious serial killers was attacked by COVID-19 in front of millions of British seniors and the most vulnerable, a move that was condemned as a “national scandal.”
The Sun reported that Levi Bellfield murdered three people, including 13-year-old Milly Dowler. He received a letter in the next few weeks. He provides vaccines, although the program is only available to people in their 70s.
David Spencer of the Crime Prevention Center called it a “national scandal.”
He told The Sun: “The concept of prioritizing criminals over law-abiding citizens illustrates how our current criminal justice system works.”
Former Secretary of the Interior David Blunkett said that this goes against “prisoners should be given any opportunity for early vaccination, let alone child murderers”.
“I hope that the Attorney General will immediately intervene to find out why the scarce vaccine dose is deployed in this way.”
Bellfield, 52, is holding two life-long positions, which means he must spend the rest of his life in order to be released on parole.
Due to the raging epidemic, most ordinary Britons are still strictly confined at home, and some nursing home residents among millions of vulnerable groups are still waiting for the shooting.
According to reports, the killer got the offer in a letter sent to him by the highest-security Frankland Prison-Durham branch. According to reports, he complained amidst his grievances that he did not get it early because the pandemic “may spread like wildfire.” Put the prisoner “in danger”. .
British newspapers stated that it is not clear that other prisoners received the same offer in the prison. There is another notorious child murderer Ian Huntley in the prison, as well as the beheading soldier Lee in the street. The terrorists of Lee Rigby.
The former policeman captured Bellfield, whose memoir was the basis of the TV show “Manhunt”.
Former detective chief inspector Colin Sutton told British newspapers: “Prison staff, police officers, teachers, shop workers and delivery drivers-those who move us forward-should be given priority.”
After the anger, a source from the Ministry of Justice insisted to The Sun: “Prisoners have no priority for vaccines, nor will they.”
The source said: “No minister has read this letter or thought that criminals should have access to vaccines more easily than the majority of law-abiding people.”
A spokesperson for the ministry also insisted: “It is completely nonsense to suggest that prisoners should be treated differently from ordinary people.”
