Danish Peter Jensen, who has been imprisoned in Thailand since November 2014, remains incarcerated. A case that the 50-year-old Dane has already won in two instances is still in the Thai legal system blocking for him to get back to Denmark.

Dane remains imprisoned in ThailandOn 5 November 2014, Danish Peter Jensen from the Northern Jutland in Denmark was arrested in Phuket, Thailand, as a result of an arrest warrant from Denmark. The warrant was sent from the Danish government due to VAT and tax fraud concerning more than 8 million DKK. After a year in Phuket Provincial Prison, he was sentenced to another 18 months due to a debt that has been accumulated during his imprisonment.
