Asil Nadir

Asil Nadir was prosecuted on various counts of theft and fraud following the 1990 collapse of his Polly Peck business empire.

He failed to appear for trial in 1993 having buggered off to the unrecognised Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus where he escaped extradition.

He is wanted on theft charges of £34 million. In 2003, he vowed to return to clear his name but refused until the British Government promised not to remand him in jail until his trial. He is now back in the UK on bail. 20 years is a long time to wait for justice. In my view, unforgiven!
