On-the-run solicitor Michael Lynn arrested in Brazil

Michael Lynn, the on-the-run solicitor who fled Ireland in 2007 leaving a trail of unpaid bills and debt in his wake has been arrested in Brazil.

On-the-run solicitor Lynn wanted for fraud.

The renegade solicitor is reported to have used the birth of his son to secure the permanent Brazilian visa.

A new agreement between Ireland and Brazilian authorities was used to facilitate his arrest. He is expected to appear in court in that country later today.

Michael Lynn is facing dozens of fraud-related charges after fleeing Ireland, owing more than €80m to several financial institutions.
