Skinhead fights for life after jail attack
Posted by mythoughtsandnews on June 21, 2006
A skinhead prisoner was last night on life support in Christchurch Hospital after being beaten up by Mongrel Mob members the day after being transferred from another jail.
The 33-year-old suffered a fractured skull after an apparent hit by the gang members at Christchurch Men's Prison on Friday morning.
He had been transferred from Dunedin Prison the day before.
Police would not name the man, but said he had been serving a three-year sentence since 2004.
