Four detained for EUR 16 M-tax evasion

The National Anti-Corruption Directorate (DNA) prosecutors detained four people charged with a EUR 16 M-tax dodge, for the selling of oil products – Euro 5 diesel – using “bogus” companies. According to a release by DNA, Racz Peter Attila, Ion Livadariu, Stelian Livadariu and Dumitru Costache set up an organized crime group with a view to indulge in tax dodging-activities. In most cases, the “bogus” companies, based in Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary were set up with the deliberate purpose of providing a legal front to this criminal circuit. The funds thus obtained were taken out from banks by the members of the group by means of “bogus” companies, based on fictional justifications, such as the purchase of grain or scrap metal, or on behalf of individuals who had nothing to do with these operations.
