Moors murderer Ian Brady remains "chronically psychotic" and should remain in a hospital setting for treatment, his mental health tribunal was told today.
The child killer suffers from long-term paranoid schizophrenia which does not "just fade away and die", according to the clinician in charge of his care at high security Ashworth Hospital in Merseyside.
Brady, 75, was constantly paranoid about the Home Office and the Prison Officers Association, and believed hospital staff were acting as their agents, a panel sitting at the hospital was told.
Giving evidence, Dr James Collins said Brady also had paranoid beliefs about fellow patients who he thought were spying on him.
