A PILOT who helped the fugitive businessman Asil Nadir flee British justice and find sanctuary in northern Cyprus was jailed for two years at the Old Bailey yesterday.

Peter Dimond, 57, a former Barnardo's boy, was found guilty of perverting the course of justice by arranging to fly Mr Nadir beyond the reach of British jurisdiction in 1993. The former head of Polly Peck was facing charges of theft and false accounting following the collapse of his pounds 1.3bn empire three years earlier.
