Gareth Thomas Business Partner Is A Fugitive From Justice In South Africa – Stole 1.4 Million Bucks.
I fucking knew there was something strange about Sean Smith when he started sending me emails saying he was Gareth Thomas’s partner after Gareth had denied it. But now all this shit has come out……
RUGBY legend Gareth Thomas is expected to be stunned by revelations a friend he started a business with is WANTED over alleged swindles of £1.4million.
But the People can exclusively reveal Smith fled justice more than two years ago after persuading magistrates in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, to release him on bail because he had HIV and feared dying in prison.
He was helped by a clinical psychologist who testified to the court that Smith, 42, was HIV positive. It is believed he contracted the virus from an infected needle.
At the time Smith was awaiting trial over 14 charges of fraud and theft totalling £1.4million.
The judge who let him out came to the decision after being told the police had confiscated his UK citizen’s travel documents.
But once he was free Smith went to the British consulate and managed to persuade officials to give him a replacement passport.
Before leaving the country he emailed his lawyer in South Africa saying he was going to Australia. Soon afterwards a warrant for his arrest was issued.
