Williams' Father Agrees To Extradition
Actress MICHELLE WILLIAMS' father has agreed to return to his native U.S. to face tax evasion charges.
Stock market trader Larry Williams is currently living in Australia after a self-imposed exile following accusations of willfully attempting to evade $1.5 million (GBP750,000) in taxes from 1990 to 2001.
He was arrested in Sydney in May 2006 at the request of U.S. authorities, but was later freed on $857,000 (GBP428,500) bail.
And he has now agreed to return home to be quizzed over his financial affairs after American officials issued an extradition order.
But Williams insists he is innocent of the allegations and will beat the charges.
He says, "I will fight this and win. I will be back - I have a lot of friends here in Australia."
Williams is due to fly to Los Angeles on Wednesday (12Nov08), according to Australia's The Daily Telegraph newspaper.
