Man ‘in fear for his life’

MELBOURNE: A 40-year old man who was ordered to be extradited to NSW yesterday was in fear for his life, his counsel told the City Court.

Detective Senior Constable John O’Hagan, of the NSW police armed-robbery squad, presented an application for the extradition of Mr Edwin John Middleton before Mr Danaher, SM.

The application stated that Mr Middleton was wanted to appear in court in Sydney charged with indictable offences.

Mr Tony Fisher, for Mr Middleton, said Mr Middleton thought his life “wouldn’t be worth tuppence” if he was sent to the Long Bay Jail central cells without police protection.

He feared he would be “got at” in the cells unless he had police protection.

Detective O’Hagan said provisions had been made for Mr Middleton’s safety.

Mr Danaher ordered Mr Middleton to be returned to Sydney in the custody of Detective O’Hagan.
