A BRITISH man is set to appear before magistrates in the UK charged with two counts of fraud and money laundering.

Anthony Michael Muldoon, 65, was arrested last month following a two-year investigation led by Suffolk Trading Standards into websites offering escort work and debt management help.

The former timeshare entrepreneur was picked up in Fuengirola following the arrest of a 59-year-old British woman, Geraldine French, and a 28-year-old South African, Bradley Rogers.

A source close to the case told the Olive Press that Muldoon was due to be extradited to the UK on Friday and will appear before Ipswich Magistrates Court on Saturday.
