Lee Murray faces further punishment for fathering a child in prison
THE cage-fighting crime boss behind the $85,000,000 Securitas heist has been moved to a high-security unit and stripped of prison luxuries.
It comes after the Sunday Mirror revealed that Lee Murray, who is behind bars in Morocco on drugs charges, fathered a child behind bars.
Prison chiefs were furious after learning that he flouted rules by sleeping with a woman visitor who was not his wife.
Murray, 32, was moved to a tougher unit of Kenitra prison, near Rabat, and his mobile phone, television and DVDs were confiscated.
It is believed that his right to have visitors has also been withdrawn.
In an interview from his cell for a martial arts magazine in 2009 he revealed that he could watch TV, DVDs and even pornography. And he said he had been rewarded for good behaviour, saying: “If you’re good you get special s—.”
He was punished for the comments with time in solitary confinement.
Murray has been in the jail since 2006, months after he led the biggest heist in British history in Tonbridge, Kent.
The gang kidnapped depot manager Colin Dixon and his family before stealing $85,000,000 in used bank notes. Murray fled to Morocco with his trainer and best friend Paul Allen, who was later caught and extradited to the UK where he pleaded guilty to his part in the raid.
Murray, who was known as Stopwatch by detectives because he had the job of timing the robbery, was arrested on drugs charges in Rabat and jailed for 25 years.
Under Moroccan law, conjugal visits, where inmates can spend private time with their spouses, are often rewarded “unofficially” to inmates for good behaviour.
But they must prove they are married… Murray and the mother of his child were not.
