Serial killer Ivan Milat may only have weeks to live . He is unlikely to return from hospital to Goulburn's supermax jail. Now doctors estimate one of the country's worst killers might have as little as a fortnight to live but Howard warns no one should hold out hope for a death-bed confession.

“There are a number of cases where people have disappeared in similar circumstances to those Belangalo victims and I think that they may just not have been found yet,” she said.

She said of all the potential victims Milat has been linked to in the past, the strongest candidate is Peter Letcher.

Ms Mallet said: “I’m actually quite tempted to contact Ivan Milat and ask him are there any other victims, because coming to what we think is the end of his life, now it may be time for him to share those details and help those families who never had answers.”

But while he joined calls for Milat to answer any questions, Minister David Elliot says he doubts that will happen.

Former investigator's message to Ivan Milat, as the serial killer is treated for terminal cancer As Ivan Milat learns he has terminal cancer, the man who led the police task force to catch him almost 25 years ago says there was one thing the killer should do before he dies. "If he has one bit of decency in him, he would publicly admit to the crimes he's committed and explain it to the families of his victims - tell the truth." The comments come from former detective and Assistant Commissioner of the NSW Police Clive Small, who led around 600 police officers assigned to Task Force Air to capture Ivan Milat, the man behind the seven backpacker murders.

Notorious serial killer Ivan Milat has arrived at the Sydney prison where he’ll likely spend his final days after being transferred under tight security from a nearby hospital. The serial killer’s nephew, Alistair Shipsey, has said his uncle’s condition is “very bad” and he may only have a couple of weeks to live .

“I think I join every taxpayer in NSW in the hope that there’s an early resolution to the Milat matter at the moment,” he said.

Milat, a former road worker, was sentenced in 1996 to seven consecutive life sentences for murdering seven backpackers whose bodies were found in makeshift graves in NSW's Belanglo State Forest in the 1990s.

He also kidnapped British tourist Paul Onions who managed to escape from Milat's vehicle.

NSW Corrective Services NSW Commissioner Peter Severin earlier this week said prisoner transfers were done in the "most secure and safe way possible".

High-risk and terrorism-related inmates are always guarded by specialist staff from the extreme high-security escort unit, a corrective services spokeswoman said.

At least one form of restraint - handcuffs or ankle cuffs - stay on high-risk inmates during medical treatment subject to medical requirements.

'But I will always love him. I don't want him to die, he doesn't deserve to be dying in pain in hospital, I'd rather not … see him.'
