Ivan Milat Has Been Transferred Back To Prison
Serial killer Ivan Milat has been transferred to Long Bay Jail hospital today after spending more than two weeks in a hospital in Sydney's east.
Milat was transported to Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick on May 13 for treatment associated with his terminal cancer.
He was diagnosed with esophageal and stomach cancer after a series of lumps were found in his throat and stomach after screening.
In an exclusive interview with his nephew, Alistair Shipley told 10 News First Milat likely only has weeks left to live.
"He was just talking about how he can't eat, he's lost a lot of weight, can't keep anything down," Shipsey said.
Milat was treated in a secure annex of the hospital designated for prisoners and he has been treated whilst wearing restraints, which is standard procedure for high-risk inmates who have medical requirements.
His transfers to and from the hospital have been conducted in the "most secure and safe way possible," according to Corrective Services NSW Commissioner Peter Severin and he has been escorted by a high-security unit.
Milat has never pleaded guilty to the murders of seven travellers whose bodies were found buried in shallow graves in Belanglo State Forest between 1989 and 1993.
He received seven life sentences in 1996 for the killings but he has continued to send letters to Shipsey detailing his innocence and signing his name "Ivan innocent".
