MELBOURNE, Australia (Radio Australia, Feb. 6) – The Australian international conman, Peter Foster, was arrested by Australian Federal Police on his arrival home from Vanuatu this evening.

Peter Foster was a voluntary passenger on an Air Vanuatu flight that flew into Brisbane but the large media contingent waiting at the international terminal saw nothing of him.

Australian Federal Police arrested Foster as soon as he left the aircraft and whisked him away.

An hour later, accompanied by three federal policemen, he was driven into the police watchhouse in Brisbane's central business district.

He shrugged when journalists asked him what he was being charged with.

Foster was convicted in Vanuatu last Friday for illegally entering the South Pacific Republic after fleeing from Fiji where he skipped bail on fraud charges.

The Australian Federal Police have charged him with a money laundering offence allegedly committed in another Pacific Island country, the Federated States of Micronesia.
