CAUTION

Christopher Robert Metsos is wanted for failing to register as an agent of a foreign government as required by United States law. This occurred from 1993 to 2005. During that time, Metsos allegedly took part in a money laundering scheme, causing money to be illegally transferred to other United States-based co-conspirators who were also unregistered agents of a foreign government. A federal arrest warrant was issued for Metsos in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York, on June 25, 2010, after he was charged with conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent of a foreign government and conspiracy to commit money laundering. Metsos was arrested in Cyprus on June 29, 2010, but posted bail and fled.
