A transgender woman convicted of rape in Scotland will not be held in a women’s prison, the Scottish First Minister said on Thursday. Nicola Sturgeonafter two days of arguing.

Bryson Islandwhich was formerly called Adam Grahamwas convicted on Tuesday of raping two women in 2016 and 2019 before she became a woman.

Justice will soon dictate its verdict, in anticipation of which he must be imprisoned. And given her crimes, some feared that she would be sent to a women’s prison.

“Given the legitimate concerns of the public and deputies in this case, I can confirm to Parliament that this detainee will not be in prison in Cornton Vale Prison for WomenSturgeon announced.

Parliamentarians from different parties expressed concern about the safety of other prisoners. For their part, the Scottish Prison Authorities have ensured that the decision on where to hold a transgender person is always made on a “case-by-case basis”, with an assessment of “risk and necessity”.

“A transgender woman never has the automatic right to serve a sentence in a women’s prison,” Sturgeon said after a spokesman for the British prime minister said the day before. Rishi Sunak said he “understands the concerns” of those who opposed this Bryson.

Controversy in Scotland

This controversy comes at a time when the British central government has just blocked legislation approved by the Scottish Regional Parliament to facilitate recognition sex change.

This is at odds with criticism from feminist activists who denounce the risk of sexual predators taking advantage of this to gain access to spaces reserved for women, despite the guarantees provided by the text.

The pro-independence Sturgeon government accused Sunak of using the issue politically to limit the autonomous powers of Scottish MPs, and LGBT activists condemned the British Conservative attack. (AFP)
