He should be back in Germany for Christmas
Boris Becker should be back in Germany for Christmas. The former tennis player has reportedly been admitted to a summary trial and is set to be deported from the UK as soon as possible.
Boris Becker, 54, will be deported – that’s the title of the British “The Sun” this Sunday (November 13). There has long been speculation that Becker will be deported from Britain as soon as he is released from prison. Expulsion rules in the UK state that foreign nationals who have been sentenced to prison for a crime could be thrown out of the country immediately upon release.
Boris Becker approved for summary proceedings
However, there was always the possibility that the former tennis pro would be sent back to Germany before the end of his sentence to serve out the remainder of his sentence under the “Early Removal Scheme”. The regulation allows Boris Becker to be deported up to twelve months before the earliest release date. Offenders benefit from a reduction in their sentence of up to 135 days if they agree to return to their home country.
This is exactly what should now apply to Boris Becker, the British newspaper reports. He is said to have been admitted to the fast-track procedure whereby foreign prisoners are sent back to their home countries to decongest British prisons. Accordingly, Boris should be back in Germany in time for Christmas.
Back in Germany for Christmas?
His former spokesman said, according to The Sun: “We are delighted for Boris that he may have qualified for early release and be able to travel to Germany, despite England having been his home for many, many years. I’m sure he will it will mean a lot to him and his family to be reunited for Christmas.”
Boris Becker was sentenced to two years and six months in prison on April 29, 2022 for delaying insolvency, since then he has been in British custody.
