Order to deport Vesco is served by Bahamas
| Nassau, Bahamas
The Bahamian government served fugitive financier Robert Vesco personally with a deportation order, sources said, but it was not known whether he was given an additional grace period to challenge the order. Mr. Vesco has been a fugitive for eight years. He is sought in the US on fraud charges stemming from the alleged $224 million plundering of his mutual fund, Investors Overseas Service. He is also charged with making an illegal $200,000 contribution to the 1972 reelect ion campaign of former President Richard Nixon.
