A former JPMorgan Chase & Co. banker who’s now on the run was sentenced to 7 1/2 years in jail for his role in a multimillion-pound fraud against the Libyan government. 

Frederic Marino, 56, was found guilty in December of fraud by abuse of position of trust from 2009 to 2014. Marino wasn’t present for his sentencing on Monday at Southwark Crown Court and an arrest warrant was already issued last year after he failed to show up for his eight-week jury trial.
