The AFP is appealing to the public for information on Paul Casey, an Irish national who is a person of interest to the AFP Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (FAST).

Mr Casey, 43, was arrested in 2013 for significant drug offences and subsequently failed to appear in court in March 2015 for his trial.

The AFP is seeking any information about Mr Casey’s current whereabouts. His last known location was in the eastern Sydney and mid-north coast areas of NSW, but he could be anywhere in Australia.

It is suspected Mr Casey could be using false identification documents to work, and may have set up accounts at Australian banks in other names.

AFP Sergeant Daniel Quade said the community plays a crucial role in helping police locate and apprehend fugitives.

“Our aim is to identify, locate and apprehend fugitives who are wanted for serious offences and bring them to justice for their alleged crimes,” Sgt. Quade said.

“Anyone who has information about Mr Casey’s whereabouts is urged to contact the AFP so we can remove him from the community and have him face court.”

AFP FAST targets offenders who are the subject of arrest warrants for serious offences, including murder, drug trafficking, child exploitation, sex offences, money laundering and serious fraud.

AFP FAST investigators work with domestic and international law enforcement partners to help arrest and extradite offenders to Australia.

Anyone who has any information on Mr Casey should contact 131 AFP or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website.
