London, Dec. 14 (ANI): In what can be termed as a shocking revelation, hate preacher Abu Hamza has got huge new wardrobes installed in his prison cell, all purchased with the help of British tax payers money.

According to The Sun, taxpayers paid hundreds of pounds for the Ikea-style furniture after Hamza moaned about a lack of storage space for his crumpling Islamic prayer garments.

Belmarsh prison staff ordered and built the flat pack just days after the request by hook-handed Hamza, who is wanted in the US over al-Qaeda-linked terror charges.

"Once again, Hamza demands special treatment and the authorities cave in. Everyone's joking about what they'll do next for him - perhaps a butler," one source was quoted, as saying.

Hamza, 51, jailed in 2006 for inciting hatred, had 650 pound lever taps put in his cell this year.

The Ministry of Justice said the wardrobes were for "disability reasons". (ANI)
