Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
No, do not pay this person anything - this is not the editor of a newspaper, there is no Interpol involvement, there is no one out there trying to arrest you - this is all part of the same scam. The lady that took the photo and all the people you have been corresponding are all part of it. They are basically trying to extort money from you by making all these threat which are unfounded and will not materialise. So most definitely do not pay anything else - you will not get into any trouble with any authorities if you do so.
Please let me know if this has answered your original question or if you need me to clarify anything else for you in relation to this? Thanks
