Man mistakenly awarded $1.1 bn over sex ban
Rayden Kullem demanded the huge sum in compensation, claiming his human rights had been breached, The Sun reported Thursday.
Incredibly, he temporarily won his claim because of a mix-up.
A top judge then had to dismiss the "preposterous" claim at an urgent court hearing.
Kullem is in Hull Prison awaiting deportation to Zimbabwe at the end of his sentence but the hearing did not reveal why he was jailed.
