Conman held in Dominican Republic jail
Michael Brown was not taking visitors at the police station jail where he's been held since his arrest last week.
The 45-year-old convicted conman is known in the Dominican Republic as Darren Patrick Nally, the name believed to be on a fraudulent passport with which he is said to have entered the country.
He absconded from the UK three years ago after being charged over a multi-million pound scam posing as a high-powered financial broker.
He was sentenced in his absence to seven years in jail in 2008 for stealing £36m from clients including nearly £8m from Manchester United's ex-chairman Martin Edwards.
