Psychopath rapist sues Home Office after he was attacked by prisoners in jail

PUBLISHED May 28, 2012

Kennedy Tisson was jailed for eight and a half years in 2006 after being convicted of repeatedly raping, torturing and humiliating two vulnerable women.

Now the monster is demanding damages from the Ministry of Justice, saying prison staff at HMP Brixton deliberately unlocked two prisoners, who went into his cell and seriously assaulted him.

Tisson, 40, who is currently caged at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire, is claiming damages for trespass, assault and battery, negligence, breach of statutory duty, and duty of care as well as misfeasance in public office.

He suffered pain, psychological damage and physical injuries as a result of the attack on May 31 2009, according to his High Court claim.

He is thought to have suffered serious injuries to his left eye.

Tisson has been given special permission by a procedural judge to issue his claim. He is not using solicitors.

The court heard that Tisson was a control freak who targeted the women to give himself a power kick, subjecting them to appalling acts of depravity.

The Home Office is expected to contest his claim, and this is expected to cost thousands of pounds in legal fees. ends
