Felixstowe/US: Eddie Maher’s wife and son facing deportation from United States
US authorities are in the process of attempting to throw Eddie Maher’s partner and eldest son out of the country, it emerged today.
Maher, a former Securicor guard, is charged with the theft of nearly �1.2million from outside of Lloyds Bank in Hamilton Road, Felixstowe on January 22, 1993.
The 57-year-old was extradited from the US last week to appear before Ipswich magistrates.
Now, a spokesman for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has said moves are under way to eject his common-law wife and the couple’s 23-year-old son Lee from the country.
A statement from ICE read: “Debra Ann Brett and Lee Edward Brett are both currently in removal proceedings. Each was issued a Notice To Appear before a federal immigration judge.”
Yesterday Maher appeared before Ipswich magistrates for a second time, via video link from HMP Norwich where he is being held on remand.
He did not enter a plea and no application for bail was made, leaving him remanded in custody.
