The National Crime Agency has released its list of 11 ‘most wanted’ fugitives, in an effort to catch some very nasty criminals. Included on the list is Sarah Panitzke. From Fulford, near York, Pantizke is wanted by HMRC and is accused of laundering around £1bn for a crime group involved in VAT fraud.
To carry out the alleged frauds, she travelled extensively to places including Dubai, Spain and Andorra. She absconded in May 2013 before her trial finished.
Panitzke has a Yorkshire accent and is about 5ft 5in tall. Some 18 members of her crime group received sentences totally 135 years.
