PAUL HOGAN was stunned when he was served with an order detaining him in Australia because the legal notice came just hours before he was due to bury his beloved mother.
The Crocodile Dundee star, who lives in Los Angeles, flew back to his homeland on Friday (20Aug10) following the death of his 101-year-old mum and was immediately served with a departure prohibition order as part of his ongoing tax dispute Down Under.
Hogan's lawyer, Andrew Robinson, has revealed the bombshell news came the night before the funeral and he has slammed Australian officials for their insensitive timing.
Robinson says, "It was served on Paul's daughter at her Sydney home on Friday night with the funeral on Saturday morning. Imagine on the night before you bury your mother for this to happen."
The attorney also fears Hogan could be stranded in Australia for several years, leaving him thousands of miles away from his wife and child in Los Angeles.
He adds, "(Hogan) could potentially be stuck in Australia for years. It is not looking good; this is a very serious order."
The papers stem from an ongoing investigation by officials at the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), who have been chasing Hogan for millions of dollars in allegedly unpaid taxes for several years.
He is believed to owe a massive $32.1 million (£21.4 million) after officials amended his bill in July (10).
