HATE preacher Abu Hamza has refused any more treatment from his prison nurse after finding out the man is gay.
* Gimme a break: You mean the guy wiped his ass for more than 2 years and Hamza didn’t know that he was gay? Hamza used to be a bouncer around the strip-clubs in Soho, he can tell gays a mile away…Â
The nurse, nickname Queenie, has been helping to wash and dress the convicted terrorist for more than two years.
A prison source told the Mirror the full-time staffer is openly gay and has a camp voice.
Officers at Belmarsh jail are said to be surprised Hamza, 48, has not noticed before.
Now the cleric is claiming it is against his religion and human rights to be treated by a homosexual. The source said Hamza’s solicitor wrote to the governor demanding his client is given a new regular nurse.
The prison service refused saying it does not discriminate on grounds of sexuality.
The source said: “The nurse is upset about it. He has spent the last couple of years doing everything for Hamza, even wiping his bottom.
“It shows how little respect Hamza has for others. The nurse dresses him, washes him, cleans his teeth, cuts his toenails, trims his beard and applies ointment for his skin disorder.”
Egyptian-born Hamza, serving seven years for inciting murder and racial hatred, requires care because he is limited by his hook hands.
The source said: “His nurse is open about being gay. He even speaks with a camp voice. His nickname is Queenie.
“Hamza has been refusing treatment while he is on duty but he won’t be able to keep that up because it is causing him a great deal of discomfort.”
The prison service said: “We do not comment on individual prisoners.”
