Jailed Fraudster Wants Cyprus Transfer

Millionaire Michael Voudouri, imprisoned in Scotland for money laundering, wishes to serve the rest of his 11-year prison term in Cyprus, the Scottish Daily Record reported.

“The 47-year-old, who went on the run to the holiday island before being jailed for a massive carousel Vat fraud, has given up his fight to keep his £1.6million mansion in Bridge of Allan, Stirling, and believes that decision will help seal a deal to get shipped out of Scotland,” wrote the Record.

Voudouri hopes the deal will see him return to Cyprus by summer’s end.

His famioy lives in the Turkish-occupied portion of the island-nation, but Scotland has no prisoner transfer treaty provisions for that region, the Record reported. Therefore, Voudouri, if returned to Cyprus, Voudouri would have to be incarcerated in  Nicosia, the country’s only central prison.
