Asil Nadir jailed for 10 years


Former fugitive tycoon Asil Nadir has been jailed for 10 years for stealing nearly £29m from his Polly Peck business empire more than 20 years ago.

Nadir, 71, stole from Polly Peck International, a major UK conglomerate until 1990 when it collapsed after a Serious Fraud Office investigation.

He fled the UK in 1993 while awaiting trial and went to northern Cyprus but returned in 2010, as Clive Coleman reports.
