Collar bomb suspect kept behind bars

BOMB hoax victim Madeleine Pulver has been spared another ordeal during her HSC exams after her alleged tormentor chose not to apply for bail during a court hearing in Sydney yesterday.

Paul Douglas Peters, 50, who was escorted by two detectives from the US to Australia, will remain in custody for at least another two months after being charged over an alleged extortion attempt on the north shore.

Mr Peters, who was arrested in a joint NSW police and FBI operation in Kentucky five weeks ago, was charged with kidnapping, special aggravated break enter and committing a serious indictable offence, and demanding property with intent to steal.

Paul Peters arrives at Surry Hills Police Station this morning. He has been extradited from the US charged with strapping a fake bomb to Schoolgirl Madeleine Pulver.

Ms Pulver, 18, is studying for her HSC, and exams are due to finish on November 11 - six days before Mr Peters is scheduled to appear at Central Local Court.
