According to a current Interpol Red Notice, Philip Egglishaw is 67 years old, 1.75m tall, with a moustache and receding hairline. The “international fraudster”, as he was once dubbed, is wanted by Australian authorities for his role as the alleged mastermind of one of the country’s largest tax evasion and money-laundering schemes, known as Project Wickenby.
Mr Egglishaw, whose arrest for tax evasion and money laundering has been sought by Australia since 2008, has repeatedly slipped through the net.
