WINDHOEK: Wesley Snipes, wanted in the United States for alleged tax fraud, is shooting a movie in the Namibian desert.
Snipes has been in Namibia for the past couple of months starring in a film called Gallo Walker.
The US Attorney for the middle district of Florida, Paul Perez, said on Monday that a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
Perez said the whereabouts of the star were unknown. Snipes is alleged to have illegally claimed refunds of almost $12 million (about R90 million). If convicted, he could face 16 years in prison.
In Namibia, Snipes has also run into trouble after his agents failed to settle his accommodation bills. - Independent Foreign Service |
