A failed asylum seeker claimed up to £750 million in compensation from the UK government because he is not allowed to have sex with his girlfriend in prison.
Rayden Simon Kullem, who is from Zimbabwe, claimed his human rights were being breached by the ban.
Due to an administration blunder he temporarily won his case by default – after the government solicitors failed to oppose his case.
This led to an urgent court hearing being held, in which a top judge dismissed the “preposterous” claim.
Kullem is in Hull Prison awaiting deportation to Zimbabwe following the end of his prison sentence. He has twice failed in his bid to become a UK citizen.
Kullem launched a civil claim against the government last September on the grounds it was a breach of his human rights not to be allowed to have sex in prison.
