The ex-wife of property developer Scot Young has reacted angrily to his release from prison.
Young, now 51, received a six month jail sentence for contempt of court in January after failing to reveal court-ordered financial details in a long-running divorce dispute with former wife Michelle. She claims he has hidden millions in off-shore tax havens while he insists he went bankrupt following a disastrous property deal.
Young was released earlier this week after serving three months at Pentonville Prison. He was photographed with his 29 year-old model girlfriend at an exhibition in Soho the following day, the Evening Standard reports.
“He’s still in contempt of court. How can the justice system let him take one step out of prison without him disclosing where the £400million is?”
The 48 year-old claims her former husband owes more £1 million in unpaid maintenance and child support.
“Not only is this case a personal injustice to my daughters and me, it is also a social injustice as the taxpayer has lost out on potentially hundreds of millions of pounds.”
