200 Muslim inmates of HMP Leeds who were offered ham sandwiches during the holy month of Ramadan which is forbidden by Islam have received a letter of apology from the British Government.
Justice minister Jack Straw said in a letter that a "regrettable administrative error" led to the blunder and apologised for any offence caused to the Muslim community but they should really try them as they were quite tasty.
The Justice Secretary has ordered staff at the category B facility to be more diligent and prison officers will be re-trained to consider inmates' cultural and religious needs. Irish prisoners will be given alcohol for St Patrick's day and Satanists shall be given young virgin girls to sacrifice.
In October last year the sandwiches were on a menu created for the festival, which requires Muslims to fast in daylight, no one expected the inmates to be so picky as they are in prison after all.
