How is Boris Becker in prison? His lawyer clears up some rumors at RTL. “He doesn’t whine,” he said.
According to his long-time lawyer Christian-Oliver Moser, the ex-tennis professional Boris Becker, who was imprisoned in London, is doing well under the circumstances.
“He didn’t complain, he doesn’t whine. Of course the situation is not nice, but he accepts it,” Moser told RTL in a television interview published on Friday.
Rumors that Becker complained about the food in prison or even pressed an emergency button are not correct, said the lawyer, “It’s fictitious.”
Rumors that the 54-year-old has been transferred to a “feel-good wing” at Wandsworth Prison in south London are also untrue. He only changed cells once. London’s maximum security prison is notorious for its overcrowding and poor conditions. Moser stated that he had coordinated with Becker before the interview and that he had “first-hand” information.
Becker was sentenced to two and a half years in prison in London at the end of April and is currently being held in a prison in the British capital. He had concealed assets worth millions from his insolvency administrators.
