YORKSHIRE Ripper Peter Sutcliffe wants to be transferred to a normal prison closer to his family home, his brother said.
But Mick Sutcliffe said his brother knows he will never be released and said he had not informed him of any reclassification of his status at Broadmoor Special Hospital.
On Wednesday, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he did not think Sutcliffe would ever be released following reports doctors at Broadmoor had told the multiple murderer’s lawyers he was no longer dangerous.
Mr Sutcliffe said: “He’s never coming out, he knows that.”
He said he speaks to his brother on the telephone every week but has not seen him for 15 years.
Mr Sutcliffe said: “I haven’t seen him for years.
“He sounds as normal as anyone else, but he seemed normal when he was committing his crimes – so you can’t tell can you?”
He added: “I hope they move him to Wakefield or Liverpool so I can see him regularly.”
Mr Sutcliffe said his brother told him a few weeks ago that he wanted to move closer to his home town of Bradford and still asked about old friends in the city.
Lawyers for Sutcliffe claim they had been told he was no longer dangerous.
Sutcliffe was jailed in 1981 for murdering 13 women and trying to kill seven others across Yorkshire and in Manchester. He struck twice in Huddersfield.
He was given 20 life sentences and was told by the judge that he would serve 30 years.
