To avoid COVID-19 quarantine, former Etihad Airways boss has been fined 200 million
Windowofworld.com – Millionaire James Hogan, the former chief executive of Etihad Airways, was fined up to 200 million for failing to declare he had visited a “red list” country.
Quoted from the Daily Mail, Monday (3/5/2021), Hogan was detained by Border Force officers at Heathrow airport last month after arriving on a flight from Switzerland.
He is accused of failing to disclose that two days earlier he visited Abu Dhabi – a country on the British government’s “red list”.
Have British and Australian citizenship
Anyone arriving to the UK from a ‘red list’ country must go through a ten-day hotel quarantine period.
Sources say that Hogan was stopped on March 19 after someone reported his planned trip to the British Embassy.
He was immediately escorted to a quarantine hotel to isolate himself for ten days. Hogan could also face heavy fines.
Hogan has British and Australian citizenship and was also appointed as the Officer of the Order of Australia on the Queen’s Birthday Honors List in 2017.
In 2011, he also signed a ten-year sponsorship deal with Manchester City, which includes the naming rights of the football club’s stadium.
