Boris Becker was transferred to another prison. He was previously held at Wandsworth Prison. The prison in London was repeatedly referred to as a horror jail because of its harsh prison conditions.
Convicted ex-tennis pro Boris Becker has been transferred to a new, lower-security prison in the UK: HM Prison Huntercombe. Oliver Moser confirmed the surprising transfer of the tennis star to some media.
“Yes, it is correct that Boris Becker was transferred to Huntercombe Prison today. A category C prison, which means there is a low level of security,” Moser told the “Bild”.
This prison now houses Becker as a Category C inmate. Category C prison inmates have the opportunity to rehabilitate themselves. It should be possible for them to reintegrate into society and find work after their release.
Huntercombe Prison has a lower level of security and is specifically designed for foreign men, according to the UK government. According to the website, around 480 men are said to live there in individual and communal cells. The inmates should also have the opportunity to continue their education and do sports.
