He allegedly broke out of Fremantle jail in 1989.

Abbott was granted parole in Brisbane in April, after completing 18 years of a 25-year sentence for a string of robberies and another brazen escape from a Queensland prison in 1997.

But he was promptly returned to custody by WA authorities.  Abbott’s Lawyers fought his extradition but a Brisbane judge rejected the bid.
