The self-proclaimed entrepreneur had said he planned to sell his mansion in the past because of ‘jealous haters’.

The Moseley conman jumped on a plane as the case concluded after being allowed to keep his passport during the proceedings.

He was jailed for ten years in his absence after being found guilty of conspiracy to defraud over a £500,000 number plate fraud.

Two brothers and a cousin were also jailed for their part in the scam, which had targeted a UK lottery winner.

Ferrari-loving Khan had targeted Scottish lottery winner Gillian Bayford, who scooped a £148 million jackpot in August 2012, in the number plate scam.

Both he band his brother Aamir Khan had also both received additional 30-month sentences for smuggling illegal immigrants into the UK.

He was convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit fraud, perverting the course of justice, plus concealing and converting criminal property

Neither the trial judge at Birmingham Crown Court nor at the Canterbury people smuggling case had asked for his passport to be handed in.

Hours after fleeing the country in June, Khan posted a video on his Facebook page to the judge saying: ‘Sorry, I had no choice.’

In the astonishing 16-minute minute video, sunglasses-wearing Khan claimed he skipped the country as he had not had a fair trial.

He was convicted in his absence of conspiracy to commit fraud, perverting the course of justice, plus concealing and converting criminal property.

Speaking directly to the camera and directing his comments to Judge Philip Parker, QC, he said: ‘I am making this video to let you know I am very sorry, I did not want to do what I did, but I felt like I had no other choice.

‘Had I stayed in the UK, I was not having no justice and the only safest option I had was to leave this country.’

Back in May 2017 BirminghamLive revealed how police had seized and crushed Khan’s £200,000 Ferrari.
