Fugitive fraudster extradited to UK

3 February, 2016 | News Releases

A company director convicted and sentenced as a result of a joint Serious Fraud Office and Greater Manchester Police investigation has been extradited from South Africa to serve his sentence. Raymond Andrew Nevitt, age 51 of Manchester, was convicted and sentenced in 2008 to three years, nine months’ imprisonment for five counts of fraudulent trading in relation to the Ravelle Group of companies, which sold second hand computer parts to the PC maintenance industry. He had absconded in October 2006 following a conviction in a linked SFO case and was arrested by the South African authorities, with support from the National Crime Agency on 13 May 2015. After his arrest, Nevitt contested his extradition. He is expected to appear at Manchester Crown Court today before commencing his sentence in order to address the original breach of his bail conditions and administrative matters.
