Italian police find fraud ring
21 Oct 2014 18:06
Italy's financial police today said they had broken up a ring of companies they believe used false accounting to defraud the state out of €1.7 billion of tax.
-
"The illegal activity has led, over the years, to damages to the state whose total sum exceeds €1.7 billion" since 2001, the financial police said in a statement.
-
Police said two Rome businessmen, Pierino Tulli and Maurizio Ladaga, created a system using false invoices issued by intermediary subcontracting companies in areas such as security services and industrial cleaning to perpetrate the fraud.
-
Using these false invoices, large sums of money were put into the accounts of shell companies.
-
The funds were then taken out in cash and deposited in San Marino or Luxembourg, and the companies declared bankrupt, the police said.
-
A total of 62 people are suspected of taking part in the fraud to some degree.
