Michael Smith News: Outrage at ‘monster’ baby killer Raymond Akhtar Ali’s $3000 compensation after prison serves him vegetables

A QUEENSLAND baby killer who chopped up his newborn daughter before burying her body has won a $3000 compensation payout because he was forced to eat vegetables in jail.

Former butcher Raymond Akhtar Ali was fed a vegetarian diet for four months, instead of specially prepared halal meat in accordance with his religious requirements.

The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal found Ali, 60, was discriminated against on the basis of his religion and ordered the State Government pay $3000 compensation into a trust fund.

Ali is serving a life sentence after he savagely bashed his newborn daughter to death in 1998 before dismembering her, cutting her in half and burying her body at his Logan Village home.

A furious Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie, yesterday described Ali as a “monster” and said he’d ordered urgent advice to appeal the decision.

Ali was fed a vegetarian diet for four months while in Maryborough Correctional Centre, instead of halal food, which needs to be blessed, slaughtered, cooked and stored to strict rules.

QCAT member Ann Fitzpatrick found in his favour because he had to eat vegetables and not halal meat.

A-G to fight baby killer compo

THE Queensland government will appeal against a decision to award a convicted murderer $3000 for feeding him vegetarian food when the man, a Muslim, had requested halal food.

Queensland Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said the government had received crown law advice yesterday that there was a good chance the decision by the Queensland Civil Administrative Tribunal could be overturned.

QCAT had awarded the compensation to prisoner Raymond Akhtar Ali, who was found to have violently murdered his new-born daughter in 1998 before cutting her body in half and burying it at his Logan Village home.

Ali was fed vegetarian food for four months in jail at Maryborough Correctional Centre, despite requesting halal meat prepared in accordance with his religious beliefs, and QCAT found he had been discriminated against because of his religious beliefs. “When I found out about this matter, I was as shocked and appalled as I think most Queenslanders would be,” Mr Bleijie said.

“It’s not common sense to award that particular monster $3000 in compensation.”

Mr Bleijie said while prisoners had some rights, and freedom of religion was part of Queensland society, there was a limit to what could reasonably be delivered to those in jail. “It has gone too far when the state has to fork out $3000 in compensation,” he said.

“I think people just have to accept it’s not all rosy in prison. It’s not a holiday camp.”
