Southport businessman Mike Foster faces the threat of extradition to Africa

Southport businessman Mike Foster faces the threat of extradition to Africa, four years after his arrest over an alleged £1.7M rainforest fraud.

Mike Foster, from Southport, is accused of paying officials in Liberia £1.7M to secure a multi-billion pound rainforest contract enabling his company ‘Carbon Harvesting Corporation’ to sell virtual carbon credits on the global market.

56-year-old Foster denies the allegations, which he claims are politically motivated.

Mr Foster was arrested 3 years ago at his home in Southport on suspicion of corruption by City of London Police.

He has since had his bail cancelled, but has been told he faces rearrest at any time and possible extradition to stand trial in Liberia.
