A man who was targeted in a prison riot at Her Majesty’s Penitentiary in 2014 has won a $45,000 settlement from the provincial government.
Kenny Green was beaten with a church pew and stabbed with homemade knives when a bloody riot broke out in the chapel at HMP.
The entire incident was caught on security video. Green alleged that the government was negligent in the attack because prison guards allowed it to happen. The amount of the settlement was published in an order of council by the provincial cabinet.
NTV is covering the story and will have more tonight at 6 on the NTV Evening Newshour.
