UK: Country’s most wanted fugitive found in Spain for £1bn scam

Britain’s most wanted woman has been arrested in Spain after nine years on the run.

The Civil Guard detailed in a statement that the fugitive, identified by British police as 47-year-old Sarah Panitzke, was arrested on Sunday while walking her dogs in the village of Santa Barbara in northeastern Spain.

Sara Panitzke has been wanted on money laundering charges since 2013. He and other fraudsters bought mobile phones overseas and sold them in the UK without paying Value Added Tax (VAT).

Thanks to this scandal, the criminal organization has made profits of more than one billion pounds sterling (1.2 billion euros), according to Spanish and British police.

The Spanish Civil Guard said, “According to British investigators, the SP was the person responsible for laundering the organization’s profits through several companies owned in Spain, Andorra and Dubai.”

“At one point this organization managed to sell more mobile phones than all legal shops in the UK,” she said.

Sarah Panitzke disappeared in May 2013 and was later sentenced to eight years in prison in absentia.
