A now former employee at a prison in England was dismissed for being deemed “too sexy”. She now wants to receive compensation from the government.
Amitjo Kajl, 22, said that colleagues made her life a living hell, with nasty comments that she wore a lot of makeup and their clothes were too revealing.
She said she was alerted to the risks of being pulled into the cells of the juvenile detention home Brinsford Prison, near Wolverhampton. She has even been called “stupid little girl” by an older colleague.
She said she had worked at another prison with no problems, but that once moved began to be suppressed by using heavy makeup, bangles and nose ring. She even bought lighter shades and other products to fit the rules.
Amitjo, whose uniforms had to be adjusted because of their size, now fights in the courts for compensation from the Secretary of Justice, Jack Straw. “I could not sleep because of bullying and harassment. I lost weight and decided I could not resign myself,” said the girl.
