Boris Becker confident he will be out of the British prison by Christmas
Boris Becker was found guilty of bankruptcy fraud at the end of April and was sentenced to 30 months, but he will only serve half of that and not all will be served in the UK.
The three-time Wimbledon champion spoke only once during his court hearing and that was just to confirm his name but it’s also come to light that Becker has been teaching English to the foreign prisoners at HMP Wandsworth where he is serving his time.
The 54-year-old hid £2.5 million worth of assets after he declared himself as bankrupt, and was found guilty on four offences under the Insolvency Act between June 21 and October 3 2017, but he wants to be deported back to Germany due to their “softer penal system than Britain.”
Becker moans about grim food in prison as stint behind bars begins: "He cannot believe how bad it is"
A source said: “He’s very confident he’ll be back in Germany well before Christmas. He believes he would be out on license there by Christmas as they have a much more lenient justice system.”
This is due to the UK Government’s Early Removal Scheme which the Home Office says is that:
“Any foreign national who is convicted of a crime and given a prison sentence is considered for deportation at the earliest opportunity.”
