Conman Peter Foster a flight risk facing new charges after false Irish passport found in Byron Bay backyard

27 Feb 2017

CONMAN Peter Foster is facing new charges after police dug up a false Irish passport in his backyard.

Foster’s home at Ewingsdale near Byron Bay was raided on Saturday after a tip-off he’d buried the passport while plotting to flee the country. The passport shows Foster’s face but uses the name Kevin McMullan, The Courier-Mail has been told.

His getaway would have taken him to Vietnam via Norfolk Island. From Vietnam his ultimate plan was to board a luxury yacht which he allegedly bought for $1 million using money stolen from an STC victim.

IFW Global private investigator Ken Gamble, who is representing STC victims, said yesterday Foster was a flight risk.
“Police arrested him because they had been given information that he had an escape plan. He was going to just disappear and not come back,” Mr Gamble claimed.
