Prison letter exposes Charles Bronson's chilling plans upon release as he's granted parole hearing
| Last updated
A letter written by Charles Bronson has revealed the notorious criminal's plans upon his release from prison.
Bronson - who now goes by Charles Salvador - is one of Britain's most infamous criminals, having spent the majority of his life locked up as a result of an armed robbery and becoming known for instigating multiple hostage situations since.
The 66-year-old is serving a discretionary life term after he took a prison teacher hostage back in 2000.
However, he was granted a public parole hearing earlier this year and subsequently could be released from prison as early as 2023.
A letter written from the criminal to a pen pal has since revealed his plans for whenever he leaves his cell in HMP Woodhill, Buckinghamshire.
Bronson wrote the letter to a fan after they got in touch about his public parole hearing.
The criminal's response - obtained by the Sun - reads: "Connor. First thing is a double proper English fry-up.
"Then go collecting what's owing me from all the parasites that have sucked off me for four decades.
"Should be fun! Be lucky. Charles Salvador."
Leaving the fan with some words of wisdom, Bronson noted on the back of the envelope: "Never walk backwards into a bears cave eating a Big Mac!"
Bronson's talk of Big Macs and English fry-ups appears like a fairly innocent aspiration to have upon being released from prison after decades inside.
However, his threat to 'go collect' what he's 'owed' from the 'parasites that have sucked off [him] for four decades' is sure to leave his enemies quaking in their boots.
Bronson will have to get through his public parole hearing first though.
During his time inside, the 66-year-old applied for parole on seven different occasions, but his requests were always denied.
Earlier this year, the Parole Board changed its restrictions on public parole hearings and Parole Board chairperson Caroline Corby ruled in favour of Bronson's application.
She said: "I have concluded that a public hearing is in the interests of justice in the case of Mr Salvador. I therefore grant the application for the hearing to be held in public."
However, Corby noted the clause: "The Panel Chair could decide to move from a public hearing to a private hearing, should the hearing be disrupted or should there be any attempt to disclose information which is properly confidential."
Branson's public parole hearing is anticipated as taking place early next year.
