NOTORIOUS prisoner Charlie Bronson has disowned his younger brother – calling him a traitor for auctioning off gifts meant for their mum.
The 62-year-old lifer, who changed his name to Charles Salvador last year, has spent more than 40 years in jail since first being jailed for armed robbery in 1974.
Now in solitary at HMP Wakefield, Bronson – real name Michael Peterson – was left fuming after finding out that six items that were meant to be gifts to his 85-year-old mum Eira had been sold off at a ‘crime auction’ by his brother Mark.
Bronson, speaking from his cell in a taped conversation released this week, said he would ‘never forgive’ his brother or cousin Lorraine Salvage and her husband Andy – who organised the auction.
The auction of 200 items – including drawings, t-shirts, sweatshirts and personal items – was held at JP Humbert auction house on October 9 last year – making around £5,500.
But Bronson says he had never given permission for all of the items to be sold off – and is now demanding the six ‘gifts’ be returned to him by the successful bidders.
