Desic allegedly used a hacksaw blade and bolt cutters to escape from the Grafton Intake and Transient Centre where he had served 13 months of a three-and-a-half-year sentence for growing marijuana.

Speaking after he surrendered himself over to the police, Desic told the police that he had escaped from the Grafton Intake and Transient Centre because he did not want to be deported to his native country Yugoslavia which was at the time embroiled in a civil war.

Asked why he decided to hand himself over to the police after 30 years, Desic told the police that he opted to surrender after losing his job and his house due to the pandemic.
