Paris Green, 30, who is reportedly currently housed in the women’s unit at HMP news/edinburgh/index.html” id=”mol-74620f50-dd02-11ed-a0b6-0b6dd737a4e3″ target=”_self”>Edinburgh, has said the surgery would make her feel more ‘comfortable in the shower.’
Born as Peter Laing, Green began taking hormones in 2011 – two years before she tied up and beat to death 45-year-old Robert Shankland along with two accomplices.
Green has long maintained it is her goal to have the full surgery and even met a surgeon in March 2020 prior to the pandemic.
However the covid pandemic and the surgeon’s doubts over security of other patients at Brighton’s Nuffield Centre due to the nature of her offence meant her application was ended.

Green is reportedly housed in the women’s unit at HMP Edinburgh.
Green however has not given up her hopes and told the news/scottish-news/transgender-scots-killer-request-sex-29727195″>Daily Record she will continue to push for the surgery even though ‘a lot of people will say [she doesn’t] deserve it.’
She said: ‘I want to feel comfortable in the shower rather than feeling repulsed. Having male genitalia feels wrong.’
The news that a dangerous criminal like Green is housed in a women’s unit follows the debacle that saw trans rapist Isla Bryson housed in HMP Cornton Vale earlier this year.
Following the furore, the SPS news/article-11780483/Scottish-Prisons-head-refuses-reveal-decided-send-trans-rapist-Isla-Bryson-womens-jail.html” style=”font-weight: bold;”>took the decision to halt the movement of all trans prisoners with a history of violence against women into the female estate.
With at least eight years left to serve on her life sentence and biological time not on her side, Green says she is in a race against the clock for successful treatment.
She continued: ‘It’s a major operation. It takes you a long time to be prepared for it and long time to recover.
‘I’ll have a better chance of making a good recovery if I have it in my 30s rather than my 40s.
‘I’d be able to come out of prison with my past completely behind me, which gives the best chance of succeeding outside.
‘I realise it’s not just as simple as me wanting the operation and everyone having to help make it happen and I understand the security concerns because I was convicted of an awful crime, but that’s past and I’m no danger to anyone.’
Green is aware that the nature of her sickening crime means she is unlikely to ever receive any sympathy from authorities or the public.
In March 2013, Green along with with Kevin McDonagh and Dean Smith invited 45-year-old Robert Shankland to a party at a flat in Fife.
Once he was inside, the trio tied him up with torn bedsheets and set upon him, punching and kicking him and beating him with a rolling pin.
They also placed a plastic bag over his head and tied a ligature around his neck.

Green has said she regrets the killing and believes if she had been born as a woman she would have avoided it
Coroners concluded the cause of Mr Shankland’s death was either by suffocation or blunt force injuries.
Sentencing all three killers to life with a minimum term of 18 years in November 2013, Judge John Morris had told Green: ‘It beggars belief you could act towards another human in this way.’
To this day, Green herself claims she is also unsure, telling the Record: ‘It was inexcusable – all I can say is I had a really awful childhood and was totally messed up.
‘I was carrying a lot of anger inside me even before I realised I should have been a woman and that made me more angry.
‘I wondered if I’d have been a different person if I’d been a woman. I’m not going to make excuses because there are none. I regret what I did and I’m sorry for it every day of my life.
‘Even five minutes before it started if someone had asked me if I was capable of murder, I’d have said no way.
‘I know what I did. But I can’t change it and I can’t bring him back.
‘But I can’t help anyone by sitting quietly, doing my time and not trying to complete my transition, so this is the best road for me.’
MailOnline has approached the Scottish Prison Service for more information regarding Green’s imprisonment and surgery hopes.
