The fugitive solicitor who left debts of €80m in his wake has found a new bolt-hole in Brazil, writes Maeve Sheehan

Ever since the corrupt solicitor went on the run from an €80m mortgage fraud five years ago, he has been working towards holing up in this South American bolt-hole favoured in the past by Nazi war criminals and fugitive train robbers.

He has finally made it. After five years and several failed attempts, it emerged last week that Lynn was now a resident of Brazil.
