& # 39; He still has 400 years to serve & # 39 ;: Ivan Milat deepen burial offset while his brother calls on the body of the serial killer to be thrown back in JAIL – because he still has six sentences to go
- Ivan Milat's brother has a new suggestion of what to do with his body
- That is, his body must be stuck in Long Bay so that he can sit out for life
- Comes in the middle of a floor of distance with the Milat family and the NSW government
- The wish of the backpacker murderer was that Corrections would pay for his funeral
- Minister Anthony Roberts says & # 39; hell will freeze & # 39; before that happens
- But the former prison governor says it's just & # 39; politically grand & # 39; is
Ivan Milat's body has to be thrown back in prison, his brother says, because the serial killer has more than four hundred years left to serve his sentence.
Bill Milat and New South Wales prisons minister, Anthony Roberts, are locked up in a tense confrontation about who will pay for the funeral of the backpacker murderer.
Roberts said: & # 39; Hell will freeze & # 39; before Corrections are paid out, but a former prison governor says the minister's comments are simply & # 39; a little politically grand & # 39; to be.
And Mr. Milat is determined that he will stick to his guns and follow the dying wish of his 74-year-old brother that the family does not pay a cent for the funeral.
& # 39; I'm not going to pay anything & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday, before throwing away some very unlikely suggestions about what to do with the body.
Ivan Milat was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences for the murders of respective backpackers – and now his brother has joked that he should be sent back to prison

Milat told Daily Mail Australia that he didn't mind what happened to his brother – whether he is left on ice in the morgue indefinitely, and even suggested that he be thrown back into prison.
& # 39; I don't care where (he goes) – they can put him back in Long Bay, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; He received seven sentences of life, he did one, so that means that there are still six (penalties of) seventy-four years to go.
& # 39; What is what, four hundred and forty-four years? & # 39;
He kept discarding other suggestions because he insisted: & We are not going to claim the body, we are not going to do anything.
& # 39; They can do it on Macquarie Street, they can do whatever they want. & # 39;
But there was one exception – he ruled out the spreading of the ashes of Milat in the Staatlo Forest Belanglo, that the Milat & # 39; s family never wanted to offend victims.
The family has explicitly ruled out that he scatters his ashes in the state forest, despite troll suggestions online, and says his final grave will be unmarked
Bill Milat is reading the latest letter from his brother Ivan this week asking for & # 39; the funeral of a pauper or whatever is appropriate & # 39;
Milat received a letter from his brother, days before his death, stating that he does not pay & contribute to my funeral services in any way & # 39 ;. The backpacker assassin suggested a funeral.
& # 39; That was not what his last wishes were and it is that simple, & # 39; said the stubborn brother or sister.
In his statement earlier this week, Minister Roberts said: “Hell will freeze before Corrections pays a penny for this man's funeral.
& # 39; Ivan Milat's body remains on ice until the family withdraws cash or the family can tell the police where the bodies are buried. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for Corrective Services said the agency sometimes provides a funeral grant to families of prisoners who have died in custody, & that will certainly not happen in this case & # 39 ;.
Former prison governor John Heffernan said that if no one comes forward, Corrective Services or the NSW government will bury Milat
But former prison governor John Heffernan, who worked in prisons for three decades, somehow said the government would probably have to pay for it.
& # 39; If no one comes forward, given that he died in custody, Corrective Services must do his best and they must bury him & # 39 ;, he said.
Mr. Heffernan said: & I would not be able to give things if they were to take him to the sea and throw him overboard. Most people probably think so.
& # 39; We can't do that – we're supposed to be a human society & # 39 ;.
NSW Health, which currently has its body on ice, was approached for comment.
THE FINAL LETTER FROM IVAN MILAT TO HIS BROTHER COMPLETE
Before he died of cancer on Sunday at the age of 74, Ivan Milat wrote this last letter to his brother Bill:
Hello and maybe everything is fine with you and your family. Things are quite skewed with me, but while I would like you to know that years ago you were nominated by CS NSW as my surviving contact person, that is Corrective Services New South Wales.
Because of my health problems, I wish to leave you everything I have. All funds, funds on my prison account and assets of all other assets, legal and procedural and objection revision documents that are in the possession of Corrective Services NSW on my behalf. Above all, I ask William (address) that I thank you for this.
I realize and am aware that this letter may not be my legal will and will in my opinion. CS NSW Government Services and possible procedures, I believe. But I hope that this letter clearly shows my intentions and wishes that you will receive Bill my funds and legal documents.
Keep this letter to show your lawyer that you are the only beneficiary. Please do not pay for my funeral services or contribute in any way. CS NSW to finance it all. A funeral of paupers or whatever is appropriate. I have assured the NSW CS Commissioner of my wishes.
I am innocent of the crimes that have been convicted.
