Boris Becker ‘confident’ he’ll be freed from prison before Christmas to serve rest of sentence in Germany

JAILED Boris Becker is confident of being freed before Christmas by being repatriated to serve his sentence in Germany.

The ex-tennis champ, given 30 months for hiding £2.5million of assets after filing for bankruptcy, could be sent to a prison in his home country.

Boris Becker is ‘confident’ that he’ll freed from prison before Christmas

He believes he would be released on licence much sooner in Germany, which has a softer penal system than Britain.

Becker, 54, was due to be deported after his sentence under Home Office rules for prisoners serving more than a year.

He has been facing 15 months behind bars here before getting out half-way through.

But under the Government’s Early Removal Scheme, he could be sent to Germany in November after seven-and-a-half months.

And a source said: “He’s very confident he’ll be back in Germany well before Christmas.

“He believes he would be out on licence there by Christmas as they have a much more lenient justice system.”


It’s understood that Boris Becker has been put on a cushier wing at HMS Wandsworth

We can also reveal Becker is teaching English to foreign prisoners — after requiring a translator at his own trial last month despite being a BBC commentator.

He is understood to have been put on a cushier wing at London’s tough Wandsworth jail.

If removed from the UK, he could return to his TV work here — but only if the deportation order was revoked.
