PRISONER John Anslow who was recaptured in Northern Cyprus last week after being on the run for 14 months will face the courts in connection with his jail van escape.
The 32-year-old, who is from Tipton, has this afternoon (Friday) been charged with conspiracy to escape from lawful custody.
He was arrested in the Alancak area for immigration offences on March 13 and was picked up by UK officers at Heathrow on Saturday (March 16).
Anslow escaped from the prison escort van in Tardebigge in January last year, whilst en route to Stafford Crown Court from HMP Hewell. Anslow was being held at Hewell after being charged with the murder of Richard Deakin in Chasetown, Staffordshire, in July 2010. He is still to face court proceedings regarding the murder charge.
Anslow will appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (March 25), in connection with the prison van escape.
Nine other men have previously appeared in court charged with conspiracy to assist in the escape from lawful custody of Anslow.
