A British murderer sentenced to life in prison for a double murder and who later murdered two inmates has broken the world record for solitary confinement.

According to mirror As of Saturday, January 21, Robert Mawdsley, 69, has been in isolation for 16,400 consecutive days.

Mawdsley, who was incarcerated at Wakefield, killed two fellow prisoners in 1978. He is later believed to have told a guard: “There will be two shorts on the list.”

After that incident, he was placed in solitary confinement, and in 1983 he was transferred to a specially designed cell after all prison staff refused to see him alone.

The 5.5 by 4.5 meter cell is slightly larger than average and equipped with large bulletproof windows. It is equipped with a concrete bed, a metal toilet and sink bolted to the floor, and a compressed cardboard table and chair.

The cell bears many similarities to the cell in which the cannibal murderer Hannibal Lecter, played by Anthony Hopkins in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs, was kept.

Mawdsley spends 23 hours out of 24 locked in the cell he is said to have described as “like being buried alive in a coffin” and is fed through a small slot in the Plexiglas-lined steel door keeping him in solitary confinement.

Mawdsley has campaigned for better treatment in the past and in 2000 went to court in an attempt to “allow him to die”. She also asked for a pet parakeet which she promised to love and not eat.

He has also asked for a television so that he can “see the world” and added that: “If the prison service says no, then I ask for a simple cyanide capsule which I will gladly take and the problem of Robert John Mawdsley can be solved easily and quickly. ”. resolved.”

Mawdsley’s nephew Gavin told Channel 5’s Evil Behind Bars that his uncle had accepted his fate saying: “He’s asking to be alone because he knows what can happen.

“Put him in a wing surrounded by rapists and pedophiles, I know because he told us, he was going to kill as many pedophiles as he could.

“I am not condoning what he did. She did very bad things. But he did not kill a child or a woman. An innocent person didn’t go to work that day and he never came home. The people he killed were really bad people.”

Other inmates have described his imprisonment as psychological torture saying, “There are other ways to deal with prisoners like Bob.”

Mawdsley will turn 70 in June and is set to become the UK’s longest-serving prisoner after Moorish killer Ian Brady, who served 15 years before he passed away.

The killer who breaks the world record for solitary confinement he does so at his own request with the option of euthanasia not available in the UK.
