Czech national convicted of Bingo game fraud caught in US after 22 years

November 8th, 2017

Pavel Fantys, a Czech citizen convicted for rigging Bingo, a game organised by Nova TV commercial broadcaster, was recently caught in the United States, 22 years after his Czech trial, news portal Aktualne.cz reported on Wednesday. In the mid-1990s, a court found Fantys guilty of heading a seven-member gang that used a computer fraud scheme to siphon off at least 27 million crowns (EUR 1.1m) from the Bingo game. Fantys fled abroad in late 1995, and only later a Czech court sentenced him in absentia to five years in prison. With Fantys re-arrested now, the court will discuss his case once more from the beginning at his own request.
