Rosdeep Adekoya, who killed her son in Edinburgh in 2014, has been allowed out of jail twice a week for shifts at a Stirling charity shop, according to The Scottish Sun on Sunday.
A source told the newspaper: “Rosdeep said the shop is dirty. She didn’t think she should have to work in such conditions, She’s been moaning to everyone in jail and even raised it with the bosses.”
“She has a brass neck complaining about something so trivial considering what she did to Mikaeel. Many prisoners have committed lesser crimes but don’t get such opportunities.”
According to the newspaper, the 38-year-old’s release date is near, and she could be freed as early as May.
She is also studying through the Open University.
A spokesman for the charity shop said: “We work under the guidance and support of the Scottish Prison Service to provide short-term placements for people on release from prison. This is a sensitive area of our work.”
