British-American software pioneer John McAfee has been arrested in Spain for tax evasion. That has been announced by the US Department of Justice.
75-year-old controversial and eccentric John McAfee, founder of the antivirus company McAfee, is accused of not filing tax returns from 2014 to 2018 and of withholding assets including real estate, a yacht and a car.
The charges were made public after he was arrested. He is being held pending extradition, the ministry said.
According to prosecutors, McAfee has made millions of dollars promoting crypto coins, giving lectures, consulting assignments and selling the rights to his life story for a documentary. He has not paid any tax on that.
He can receive up to five years in prison for this if he is convicted of tax evasion.
