A machine gun killer serving a life sentence for a brutal slaying in an Edinburgh suburb has been caught with a mobile phone in prison for the fourth time.
Cadil Huseen, 29, was part of a gang that gunned down Mohammed Abdi in Duddingston during a bloody drugs feud in 2014.
Huseen is serving a minimum 25 year sentence.
Perth Sheriff Court was told on Friday he will not be eligible for parole until 2038.
He admitted having an iPhone and charger hidden in his cell at Perth Prison on December 16 last year when it was searched by prison officers.
Solicitor Paul Ralph said: “He was given 30 days in segregation as a result of this.”
Sheriff Gillian Wade jailed Huseen for eight months and said: “There is no alternative.
“You already have three analogous offences on your record.”
Huseen and fellow gang members Mohamud Mohamud and Hussein Ali admitted killing Mohammed Abdi with a sub-machine gun.
All three were sentenced to life with a minimum 25-year punishment period in jail.
Lord Turnbull said they were prepared to “engage in violence of an extreme nature”.
A trial had heard how a large Somalian crime network, with London connections, operated in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Huseen and Ali were involved in large-scale drug dealing, with Mohamud a close associate.
The victim Mr Abdi had been close to the group, until he set up a rival drug gang.
This sparked a series of tit for tat incidents between the gangs before it escalated to the fatal shooting.
