Charles Bronson adamant he's 'never been a danger to public' ahead of parole verdict

Charles Bronson adamant he's 'never been a danger to public' ahead of parole verdict

Charles Bronson is set to hear today whether or not he will be released from prison

Charles Bronson is adamant that he no longer poses any kind of risk to the public.

The notorious criminal, once dubbed the UK's most dangerous inmate, is up for parole, with a verdict on whether or not he will be released set for today (30 March).

During a two-day hearing earlier this month, Bronson, who now goes by the name Charles Salvador, pleaded with the board to let him out.

The 70-year-old claimed he no longer had the appetite for violence he once possessed.

During a session, Bronson told the panel that he was ready to get out of prison and start a new life, claiming he'd had 'more porridge than Goldilocks and the Three Bears' and was 'sick of it'.

The parole board only has the power to order Bronson's release, move him to an open jail or order him to remain where he is.

And while it's expected that he's likely to have his request rejected, Bronson told ex-wife Irene Dunroe that he was feeling pretty confident.

He apparently told her that he has grand plans for when the verdict is given.

She said: "A Bentley car is going to come and pick him up when the day comes.

"It's going to take him straight to the greasiest spoon cafe he can find so he can have a double breakfast of everything – double sausage, double egg."

Bronson has now hit out at the authorities for apparently trying to make out that he is a violent criminal who needs to stay locked up.

And he claims that he's not a danger, and never has been.

Bronson told Sky News in a voice note: "They keep f****** drumming it into the public I'm a danger. Who am I a danger to?

"I've never been a danger to the public. I love people, love 'em, I love the world. I'm not a f****** filthy terrorist or a rapist, or a murderer, so who am I dangerous to outside?"

He went on: "I want to go home, I'm an artist born again. I hate violence, I despise it and that's all I've done for the last ten years, sit in my cell, a model prisoner, polite, respectful but they still won't let me out."

He's not the only one holding out for a positive result, though.

One of Bronson's former prison guards recently said he hopes he gets released.

In an interview with the BBC, Roy Kirk has opened up about his relationship with Bronson, saying: "We got on like a house on fire. I stuck up for him when I felt necessary."

He added: "I was very close to Charlie, like I would be with anybody I've worked with daily, [I] kept professional distance and boundaries. But we'd become very good friends.”
