Wesley Snipes Allowed to Travel

According to the BBC, Wesley Snipes, who was recently sentenced to three years in prison for tax fraud, was granted permission to travel abroad to work. Below is a snippet from the article.

“He will be allowed to visit the UK and Thailand for filming and editing on forthcoming movies. A travel ban request had been made on the grounds he might not return.

Federal judge William Terrell Hodges approved Snipes' request to visit London for three days to put the finishing touches to Gallowwalker.

He will go to Thailand for eight weeks to film Chasing The Dragon. The 45-year-old, whose screen credits include White Men Can't Jump and Jungle Fever, was accused by prosecutors of failing to pay tax or file tax returns on earnings of $38m (£19.2m) since 1999.”
