American businessman McAfee died in Spanish prison after court ruling

The American businessman is known for his eccentric behavior and videos is a pioneer in anti-virus software and was accused of tax evasion in Tennessee. McAfee was charged with cryptocurrency fraud in New York.

The Spanish court stated in its ruling that it had agreed to extradite McAfee. In the United States, he is wanted for tax evasion.

The 16-page judgment stated on Monday: “The court agreed to the US judicial authorities’ request for the extradition of John David McAfee, which was a crime identified in the tax crime charges between 2016 and 2018.”

McAfee, who was arrested in Spain in October, is supposed to have reportedly failed to file tax returns between 2014 and 2018, although he earned millions of dollars in consulting work, cryptocurrency, and the right to sell his life story.

According to the extradition request submitted by the United States in November and mentioned in the ruling, McAfee’s income during this period exceeded 10 million U.S. dollars, but it never filed a tax return.

The defendant has received more than 10 million euros in income and accumulated millions of dollars in tax liabilities. He has not filed a tax return in these years,” he said.

The defendant ordered that part of his income be paid to the front desk staff and the property be placed in his name. The Spanish court’s decision only affects crimes committed between 2016 and 2018. When he was arrested in Barcelona on October 3 last year, McAfee was preparing to board a flight to Istanbul.
