Brisbane: Fugitive conman Peter Foster has been given a week to hand himself in or his legal bid to overturn a prison sentence will be thrown out.
A Federal Court judge in Brisbane ordered Foster to surrender himself to court authorities or police by 4pm on March 25, 2014, or the 51-year-old’s appeal would be dismissed.
Foster, who claims to be hiding in Fiji, was sentenced to three years’ jail in October last year for ignoring a court order banning him from participating in the weight-loss industry.
Yesterday, Justice John Dowsett said if Foster didn’t hand himself in within a week, not only would the appeal be dismissed but the fugitive would be liable for the ACCC’s legal costs.
The conman appealed his prison sentence which prompted the ACCC to launch a counter application. – Brisbane Times
