Incest monster Josef Fritzl will remain behind bars in a maximum security prison after judges reversed plans to transfer the rapist to a softer prison.

The 87-year-old was sentenced to life imprisonment for locking his daughter Elisabeth in a dungeon he built under his home for 24 years.

Fritzl kept her as a sex slave where he repeatedly raped and abused her and as a result they had seven children.

However, in April a decision was made that Fritzl would have been transferred to a regular prison.

However, this has now been reversed by the Austrian Higher Regional Court in Vienna, meaning he will spend more time in a maximum security prison for mentally ill offenders

The regional court confirmed the decision yesterday with the words: “The higher regional court (OLG) Vienna recognized the need for further accommodation in an institution for mentally conspicuous lawbreakers.”

The correctional court responsible for the Stein correctional facility – Austria’s safest psychiatric institution, in which Fritzl is imprisoned had decided on April 1 to transfer Fritzl from the maximum security prison .

Had he been transferred to a regular prison, he could have been eligible for an early release and a request for parole starting next year.

The move was blocked after the Krems public prosecutor’s office filed a complaint supported by senior judges in Vienna.

They said the decision to keep Fritzl in the high-security psychiatric facility was justified because the rapist still suffered from an untreatable serious mental illness.

Fritzl, who changed his name to Mayrhoff five years ago, is reportedly suffering from dementia.

The rapist first locked his daughter in 1984 in the underground cellar he had built in his home in Amstetten.

During this time, the monster is said to have raped his daughter Elisabeth thousands of times before she was finally freed on April 19, 2008.

Three of the seven children he fathered were also held captive in the basement. Elisabeth, now in her mid-50s, has had no contact with her father in recent decades.

She now lives under a new identity in an undisclosed location in Austria with the children Fritzl fathered incestuously.

Fritzl’s horrific crimes were only brought to light when one of the children, identified as Kerstin, fell into a coma.

He took her to a local hospital, where doctors diagnosed her malnourished condition and decayed teeth.

When Elisabeth finally got permission to leave the basement to visit Kerstin in the hospital, she was arrested and told the police about her father’s terrible crimes.
