En brite sigtet for bedrageri af danske skattemyndigheder, Sanjay Shah (billedet), vil blive udleveret til Danmark fra De Forenede Arabiske Emirater, oplyste myndigheder på begge sider mandag.

Shah er mistænkt for at drive en ordning det involverede indsendelse af ansøgninger til det danske finansministerium på vegne af investorer og virksomheder fra hele verden om refusion af udbytteskat til en værdi af mere end 9 milliarder danske kroner (1.32 milliarder dollars).

Han nægter enhver fejl.

Danish Justice Minister Peter Hummelgaard said in a statement that he understood Dubai authorities’ decision was final but must still go via his UAE counterpart.

“We as a society can now send a clear signal to this type of criminal in a suit that no hiding place is safe, no matter where in the world you are,” he added.

The emirate’s state media office confirmed that Attorney General Essam Issa Al Humaidan had rejected Shah’s appeal.

“Sanjay Shah can be extradited to Denmark over fraud and money laundering charges,” it said on Twitter.

Shah’s media and political adviser, Jack Irvine, said in a statement that Shah was unlikely to be on the first plane out of Dubai.

“At the risk of repeating myself I will say again, Mr Shah continues to deny that the trades were illegal,” he said. “I am confident that the truth concerning (Danish tax authority) SKAT’s dysfunctionality will eventually emerge.”

Since Shah’s arrestation i Dubai i juni sidste år har hans sag været igennem flere retsinstanser.

“We have been providing consular assistance to a British man following his arrest in Dubai in June 2022 and are in contact with the local authorities,” a spokesperson for the British Foreign Office said
