The article raises more questions as to why most of them have been processed by the judicial system and have still been able to abscond. This being in stark contrast to a London looter last year receiving an 18 month sentence and shipped off to jail following the court appearance.

Nasser Ahmed, 40, was sentenced to six years at Bristol crown court in 2005 for his part in VAT fraud worth £156m, but fled before verdicts were given and is thought to be in Pakistan or Dubai. He was convicted and sentenced in his absence.
