The Greek New Zealander, dubbed ‘the phantom’, faced Southport Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, however the trial has been adjourned until April 20. After fleeing New Zealand part-way through a $3 million fraud prosecution in Auckland last July Michaels was caught on the Gold Coast in January. Alleged to have connections with Hells Angels’ bikies, Michaels is said to have left behind a trail of rich and famous victims in New Zealand. Victorian Police have also been investigating scores of allegations against the smooth-talking businessman from people who had lost up to $180,000 each. The 43 year-old has been remanded in custody, the Southport Magistrate Court representative told Neos Kosmos.last_img
