Jean Paul Dalton, formerly from Canterbury arrested in Madrid on suspicion of corporate fraud

By KentOnline reporter

An alleged multi-million pound fraudster has been arrested in Madrid after 11 years "on the run".

Jean Paul Dalton has been wanted in connection with a £4 million corporate fraud case since 2007.

The 53-year-old, formerly of Abbots Barton Walk, Canterbury, has now been charged with two counts of conspiring to defraud various companies and two counts of conspiring to cheat the public revenue.

He is accused of acting with others to fraudulently obtain credit for goods and fuel, and obtaining VAT repayments in the names of companies that were not trading.

The alleged offences were carried out between January 2003 and December 2008, and Mr Dalton has been wanted since failing to answer bail following his initial arrest in March 2007.

Kent Police officers travelled to Madrid last month to bring Dalton back to the UK, after he was detained under a European Arrest Warrant several weeks earlier.

He has been remanded in custody and is expected to enter a plea when he appears at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday, February 22.
