White collar fugitive dies in Poland with $1.3 billion debt
CORPORATE fugitive Abraham "Abe" Goldberg has died in Poland after fleeing Australia with more than $1.3 billion in outstanding debts and an arrest warrant in his name.
Once Australia's fourth richest person, Goldberg fled the country after his company Linter Group went bust in 1990. The group owned clothing brands King Gee, Speedos and Stubbies.
The 87-year-old was believed to have left an inheritance of more than $728 million but the Australian creditors he still owes are unlikely to receive a penny.
